My son is 12 and has severe ADHD and ASPERGERS. We are at our wits end! Marriage is on the brink because we cant agree on how to handle our son. Violent tantrums, extremely impatient and defiant. Trouble in school with disrupting class. Gets sent out to the hall every day in AT LEAST one class. Going to pediatrician today to discuss ADHD meds. He has tried many stimulants and they made him hyper. Strattera made him mean. Does anybody happen to know if there is a chance a stimulant might work as he gets older? It has been 2 1/2 years since we tried one. Grasping at straws here!! He is on Abilify 5mg since kindergarten. Tried upping the dose but made him too emotional. Tried weaning off of it to see what would happen and all his tics got worse and school was a disaster. Any advice would be really appreciated!! HELP!!!
