My son is 7 and in 2nd grade, he has adhd and major depressive disprder. In the past he has been diagnoised with adhd, odd, mood disorder, and an adjustment disorder. He has been on meds since 3 years old and is currently on Focalin 20 mg, prozac, and risperdal. He is getting tested for an IEP in school, because he has been kicked out many times for being defiant and unsafe behavior and hes behind now. He has a para with him all day and also a special behavior plan. He also has a community support worker that helps with his treatment and he has started therapy and I also am in close contact with him doctor. Everytime he sees the doctor we do a med change or change a dosage and it seems we cant him level or the meds just are not working. He is defiant to everyone and violates others space and property as well as is agressive. he will not take responsibility for his behavior and has no remorse for fighting his teacher, principal ect. He also just runs away from them. I have tried to get him put inpatient for a evaluation of daignois or meds or just to get him leveled out. His case worker and school tells me he is not qualified for this. NOw they are calling the police on him and i had to pick him up at the police station yesterday and they have gave him 2 juve referrals in the past 2 days. I am a single mother with other children who have adhd as well as myself having adhd and bipolar and i dont know how long i can keep dealing with this. I cant work or leave him anywhere and this situation keeps people at a distance. I am even having trouble taking him to church and i am somewhat a new christian but im having trouble. i am planning on putting him inpatient this weekend reguardless because he even says he wants to get help he dont feel good, and hes having stomach aches bad from the meds. I just dont know how much this will help or how long it will help and i feel like i have tried everything and hes getting all the services available and we still are in a crisis situation. I will be thankful for any advice reguarding this situation may god bless everyone who takes the time to read this
