Screaming tantrums
Our, non-verbal, 23 yr old CP child has been progressively becoming more difficult to manage regarding screaming tantrums.  On a recent MD visit, he was started on Delphin 7.5 mg in an effort to control his mood thus resulting in less negative behavior.  My concern is the possiblity of an interaction with his current medications, Tegretol, Phenobarb, and Depakote to control his seizure activity.  I would like to know if others have had this behavior problem and what helped with controlling these negative screaming tantrums.

Phenobarbital is kinda known for causing behavioral problems in people with neurological issues and/or mental disabilities. I would try switching the medications if there is another option or lowering the dose at least. I am not a doctor. I just work with special needs and have a daughter with Cp. This has been my experience.
