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!

I have a 6 year old son who was diagnosed with ADHD last month. For the past few years we have been struggling with him listening, especially to myself (mother) or anyone who is authoritive to him. Almost 2 years ago now my son has had to share a room and be around my fiancees son who is also 6, he is complete opposite of ADHD so it is hard for him to be patient with my son all the time....

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
