Ok....I do realize I might get only critisizm for telling you the following, but here goes! I have asked the psychiatrist 2 x now if we can try and stop difficult child SSRI, Cyprelex. He is on the lowest dosage.....We have never had a 'wow' moment with him being on this SSRI for his anxiety, bit of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)....Me and hubby think that it's more a matter of maturity and Occupational Therapist (OT) and ST that started making a difference to the good. He still gets his ups and downs with some meltdowns even on the medications. His psychiatrist just keeps on saying, he is doing so well now, why bother to take him of! So we decided to start lowering the dosage ourselves! This is day 4 on halve the dosage......he was fine but started becoming anxious, moodswings, but bad moodswings.....with irrational screaming, swearing, crying fits going on, since this afternoon! Complaining of headaches....starting with saying things again like he whish God had never made him to live, exct! But he had meltdowns and anger outbursts on the medications as well! So now I dont know if this is withdrawel symptoms......or is it his pathology coming trough because of lower dosage? Do I increase the dosage again....or do I hang on and ride the tide and see if things will get better? This might only be a transition thing because their school closes tomorrow for midterm brake! Any suggestions!?
