Hello to all of you. I stumbled on this website and I could really use some help and advice. I just recieved a diagnosis for my 8 year old son today and I feel as though a huge wait has been lifted. I have known for about 4 years that he always was a little different, today however, cemented my concerns.
Researching over the past year or two, I have read alot about everything. The one thing that have not researched enough, but yet read some insightful comments, are about Meds. My son has a termendous amount of anxiety. Following me around the house about the stove being on, to world things, to the car exploding in the garage, to the well being of everything and everyone!! Then he has an aggressive side lashing out at just about anyone, hitting, biting, pulling hair, kicking, throwing things, breaking things, etc. Then you have his defiant side, where EVERYTHING is a struggle and answered with a "NO", then you throw on ADHD to top everything off. My world feels like its crumbling sometimes, like I want to hide, and scream!! the Dr. prescribed Clinodine. What I have been reading is that its used basically for sleep. Would something like Clinodine seriously help my child? has anyone have any experience with giving it to their child? Side effects? Did it help ?
I would love some advice!!
