My eleven year old son has adah,odd, ocd, mood disorder, & motor
tics. We have seen phychologists,therapists, and phychiatrists.
He is currently on three tablets of clondine daily. I can't see any difference in his behavior being on clondine. The drugs that seemed to help were discontinued because his motor tics became severe. The drugs we've tried: short-term, time-released, generic and brand ritalin, adderall, concerta, dexadrine, zyprexa, depakote, zoloft. I feel like we up against a wall and no ones knows what to do. His current pychiatrist says she doesn't know what else to try so I should go somewhere else. The three remaining pychiatrists in our city aren't accepting new patients.
My question, do you know of a drug that could possibly help this child with his hostile, beligerent, abherrant, raging, out-of-control behavior?
He has been pschologically evaluated and he spent time in a psychiatric hospital. The evaluation has done nothing for him. His therapist said get a label for him then we can help. Well, that was five months ago and we're on her waiting list for an appointment so she can "help" him. The hospital was a joke. It turned out to be a holding tank. An expensive holding tank. I already know what I'm dealing with, I need an effective medicine for this child!
