ADHD & Mood Disorder
Does anyone have a child who has ADHD as well a mood disorder?My 12.5 yr old son has both AND has a language disorder and we had to stop his medication(Vyvanse) because of his mood disorder.His Psychiatrist said that since it(Vyvanse) is a stimulant it would make his mood disorder worse so we had to medicate him for his Mood disorder first.She wanted him on Depakote ER and I immediately was hesitant that she wanted me son on such a strong medicine.I don't know what to do?Should I medicate my son for his ADHD with a non-stimulant or medicate him for his mood disorder?Because I have not been sure what to do,he has been on nothing and it has been very stressful because of his anger and constant mood changes.Any suggestions would help GREATLY!
