My son was diagnosed with ADHD in kindergarten and it has been an up hill battle ever since. He ia a great student so graded have never been an issue but it was his behavior. He started on Adderall and after a year and a half the side edfects became to much and he was rederred to a psychologist ans was changed to Focalin. His behavior has improved but about 8 months ago he told us that he was seeinf monsters in his room at night and refused to sleep. We went back to the doctor and we were told that he had signs of being bi polar. He was started on ablify and it didn't work. He still wasn't sleeping and he was dropping weight very fast. He is 8 now and weighs about 58 pounds. He was taken off the ablify and started on Seraquel. That has made a big difference but he has become even more intraverted. He doesn't make friends easily and because he is quiet, he gets picked on.
Anyway to make a long story shorter, we can't get him to open up to anyone. We have tried family counseling and he is currently in individual counseling that is not helping. I feel like I am losing my son because he won't open up and talk. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.
