Omg I feel for you! I have a child with sever cerebral palsy and twins with ADHD.
The best advice I can give you is to step back from the situation and try to look at it as if you are the third party. I know the medication roller coaster can be very frustrating but eventually you will fine the right medication. The thing that always gets me threw a ruff spot is I always try to talk about the situation and I try to find humor in my situation. If I can't I just cry about it. The good news for me is that eventually we became use to crazy unbelievable situations being the normal. I know longer point out the bad behavior or situation I only comment on the good stuff.
I know that sounds corny but we just have to love our kids threw it.

I have a 14yr old boy same issues except he is very bright when it comes to academics. He started telling me his adhd meds make him feel weird so we stopped them things only get worse. No one seems to be able to dx him properly. he did a autism test through the school they said he didn't have for their test. If you get a good response that makes sense please pass it on to me. I will be hoping for the best.
