Well, that's what I am beginning to think about our difficult child's new medication. See, when she first moved in with us, she was raging, violently, nearly EVERYDAY, sometimes SEVERAL TIMES A DAY. This started in January, and carried through pretty much until the end of the school year. When summer hit, we took her off ADHD stims for the summer, and things improved. She was only raging once or twice a week, and not nearly as violent or agressive. Once we realized that, the psychiatrist decided she was definitely NOT adhd, and decided to try to treat her for Bipolar. She went on Lamictal in August, and has been COMPLETELY RAGE FREE EVER SINCE. Don't get me wrong, she is still FAR from being in the easy child category, there are other issues that are still a problem, but with the rages behind us, her father and I, we can handle ANYTHING else. It just seems that it is almost too good to be true...if that makes any sense. I just keep waiting for the other shoe to drop, and it makes me a little nervous. You see, difficult child raged from the day she moved in, so although I had a chance to build somewhat of a relationship with her, it was always still kind of guarded, but since she has been so pleasant to be around, it has been easier to spend quality time with her, and I am completely attached to her, and I don't know what I will do if she goes back to raging again. The thing is, she is still only at the intro dose of her Lamictal, 25 mg, and I know that intro dose really isn't even supposed to be "theraputic dosage" of that medication, so I am sort of confused as to HOW the world it has helped THAT MUCH THAT QUICKLY. I have heard a few of you mention "the magic bullet", but do you really believe that exists??? Could it honestly be true that each of our little wonders has an exact right combination of medication and therapy and good parenting that will turn them into little angels??? Like I said, we still have a long way to go to get this new medication to where it should be, and there are still certain behaviors that need work, but going from where she started raging to now, it is like she is a completely DIFFERENT KID!!!
