Hi, after reading about Elijah, and noting that my difficult child is only on 1/2 a 0.5 mg tablet of Clonidine, I'm wondering what to suggest to the psychiatrist on Mon. The Zoloft was a total bust, if you all recall. No mood changes, but plenty of physical symtoms. He did SO well on the Clonidine in the psychiatric hospital when he was first on it. But the dr doesn't want him to stay on it. She wants a "real" SSRI. I've gotten good suggestions on my other threads but I am so confused right now ... I just want to reproduce the calming effects of the Clonidine. He is much less agitated and angry on it. I realize no one can diagnosis here ... but I need ideas and feedback for the dr on Mon. Thanks in advance.
