So difficult child 2 is on his second day of Seroquel at 200mg (well, second dose at that level was tonight). He seems to have on-going periods during the day where he is quiet and subdued. And then other times he is revved up, acting impulsively, silly, sort of hypomanic I guess you could say. During one of these more "active" times today, we were in a parking structure walking back to our car and I got a weird feeling that he might do something stupid. We got to the top of the stairs and I grabbed his hand because I had this sudden sense of panic and foreboding. We took a few steps and he hollered "Geronimooooo!" I casually asked him why he said that and he replied "That's what you say when you jump." "Where are you going to jump?" "Over there..." (pointing to the side of the parking structure). "Where would you jump to?" "Down to the ground below." "Don't you think you'd get hurt?" "Nope. I'd just land on my two feet." When he was having his first major period of instability last spring, we were in this same parking structure, starting to go down a stairway, when he made a move to hang his leg over the side of the railing and try to slide down. I just about screamed because we were about 50 feet above the concrete garage below, and nothing but straight down on the side he was trying to slide down. I had to grab his hand and distract him to get us quickly down without having a panic attack myself. It felt like de ja vu today with his jumping ideas. I'm sure hoping this will settle down once we get to the right level on Seroquel. He's supposed to be reducing the Depakote ER by 250mg each week until he's down to zero. I wonder if Seroquel will be enough?
