Our grandson is 7 and we went through 2 years of unbelievable hell similar to yours.  Finally we tried Focalin for the ADHD and found tremendous success.  We also used Abilify and./or Risperdal for the anger/moods, etc.  But perhaps the best RX was the right teacher, someone who helped him find confidence and success along the way.  For everything else, a seit routine, lots of sleep and find creative ways to reinforce learning skills.  Forcing schoolwork is counterproductive but 5 minutes of spelling or math in the car works.  Smaller bites for everything, lots of praise for baby steps.  
we still have lots of struggles but it is better.  the suggestions about checking blood sugar makes sense. good luck. be consistent and in charge.

Hi-- I was not able to locate any hospitals in Calcutta that can do the extensive genetic testing required for looking for Prader Willi. How is your son doing on the food thing? Is he still getting angry/ violent without food? Do you have to lock up food to keep him from eating?

With a blood sugar test, it gives a clue as to the functioning of the pancreas and insulin production.  A common symptom, can be, but is not always, always being hungry.  If the test shows a problem, there are steps that can be taken to regulate it .. through diet first (hopefully) or medication if completely necessary.  If your son is one something for ADD, read the side effects, and see if it affects insulin/ or hunger too.  Take care,  Scott

There is a hospital in New Delhi - Sir Ganga Ram hospital-- that is a specialty hospital that is equipped to do the proper testing for your son. I don't know how you would get to New Delhi, but I am still looking for a hospital in Calcutta that would have the proper testing available.

You mention you are in India and not much resources there. Where in India? Here is why I ask-- I have several friends here who are from India-- and several of them have medical family members. Maybe I can try to ask them where they might be able to go for help.
