Yesterday I gave him no meds save a little bit of clonodine through the day to calm him down. He was a lot better. In fact he was better than on stimulants.
I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm so fed up. We've tried: Ritalin, Ritalin SR, Clonidine, Risperdal, disiprime, trazadone, chloryl hydrate, seroquel, atarax..I think that's it.
Nothing seems to work. The only thing to switch to now is dexedrine as a stimulant, but they don't want him to take a stimulant, and Depakote to start the mood stabilizer merry-go-round. As for antipsychotics, you can rule out seroquel and risperdol, doesn't leave much to choose from.
Anyway we'll have his pdoc appt today and see what happens.
