It has been over a week now for difficult child being at the hospital. He has refused to talk to us or see us until today ( he spoke with me on the phone). He had started participating in group therapy and working on his goals as of some time last week. He was not having a good day. He sounded horrible. He sounded like he was a week ago when he first entered the hospital. He seemed depressed and not caring about anything again. He said he did not want to come home and that he did not like me. He said that his stay at the hospital was not doing anything to help him. He said that the medication is not working.... I am still waiting to hear the evaluation that they did. They are going to try to add Wellbutrin to the Zoloft and see if it will make things any better. They said that it did not make sense to start him on the Lamictal like we were going to do, because he will not be in there long enough for them to see the results. Well- now they are seeing the difficult child that I see...the depressed/not caring difficult child. If the Wellbutrin added to the Zoloft causes agitation and weird behavior at least they will witness that as well. If adding the Wellbutrin to the Zoloft does not work, then perhaps they will start the Lamictal anyway. I don't know what else they could do? I hope that all the groups and goal work helps a little. I know that he says it isn't, but I am hoping that it does on some level. I can't see that there is too much left to choose from regarding the AD's at this point in time. I wonder how long it will take before they decide if adding these two AD together will work or not, I hope that we are not just waisting time in which we could have been starting to titrate up the Lamictal. I thought this would be the one thing that might help him. I just don't know anymore.
