the wrong medicine today:wildone: We went to pick him up and the guy said he still needed to give difficult child his 4:00 medicine. He pulled out a bottle I didn't recognize and neither did husband. We asked difficult child if we could see the pill the guy just gave him. It wasn't one of his. The guy said he gave one to difficult child at lunch today!! It was some other child's medication! We wrote down the name of it and I called the pharmacy. The pharmacist said it was a generic form of Ritalin! Uh-stimulants and difficult child-not at all a good mix! While I was on the phone with the pharmacist difficult child got in the car talking very loudly to difficult child. I asked him to be quiet so that I could hear. He started swearing at me and then smacked me in the head. We drove home and once home I can't remember what started the whole thing but he was told he would have to lose some Wii time (1/2 hour when he got back from therapist). He started coming after me and husband was able to restrain him but he was kicking husband and swearing at us. At one point I had to lock myself in the bathroom. He was out of control. When I told him I was calling the therapist he threw the phone to try and break it-the battery came out but he fixed it. Next I went upstairs to call the therapist. I locked my door and he put a hole in it trying to get in! This is why we don't give difficult child stimulants for his ADHD. He just can't stay in control. I'm not excusing difficult child's behavior but I'm very upset about him being given the wrong medicine. I really don't think things would have elevated to the level they did had he not had the wrong medications. He eventually used some deep breathing and calmed down enough to go to the therapist. He is much more relaxed now but what a long 30 minutes or so! I feel bad the counselor seems nice but therapist thinks and I agree that it needs to be brought up to make sure it doesn't happen again to difficult child or someone else!
