It's been a while since I've been back here. We are at our wit's end with our eight year old son's behavior. He is currently on 200 mg. Seroquel, 10 mg. Lexapro, 30 mg. Metadate. His raging outbursts are far worse than ever. We have spent nine months at this psychiatric clinic, and it seems like all she does is throw another medication at him to try. Hubby spent time researching Lexapro and found that the FDA hasn't even approved its use in children. The side effects are ones he is experiencing daily. At every checkup we give a full run-down on his outbursts and his suicidal thoughts, and she just "tries" another medication. Hubby and I have decided to wean him off the Lexapro. It can't get worse, can it? My poor, sweet boy, after having these horrible rages says, "I want my life back; I hate myself, and I don't want to live like this anymore." He is losing his friends, and it's been a long time since he's been happy. At this time the only diagnosis my son has is ADD. We will be seeing a new therapist, and then I guess we need to decide where to go from there. Any help/suggestions are appreciated.
