My daughter is 9 years old and has recently been diagnosed with ADHD with bipolar. I've had her admitted to a treatment center twice where they have evaluated her and adjusted her medications. She is now taking 300 mg of Trileptal twice aday and 2.5 mg of Abilify twice aday. I no longer know what to do. She is constantly throwing huge major fits, where she is stomping her feet, hitting herself, and screaming for anywhere from a half an hour to an hour or more. When she screams she states that my husband and I don't love her or care for her, she's stupid, she's an idiot, along with other things. She is also refusing to go to school and do her homework. It's to the point I'm afraid to even talk to her because I'm afraid she'll go into a major fit. When we take her to the treatment center it doesn't seem to work because she doesn't act out there like she does at home. Is there anybody that can help me? I'm on the edge of giving up but I don't want to because I love her but I no longer know what to do and how to handle her

She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
