Our 12 year old son has been on Adderall for years. This fall, he started middle school. He has really struggled. He was given a full neurological/psych work-up about 5 years ago, and was diagnosed with ODD. His temper tantrums and deviance and poor grades led us to to a psychiatrist to re-evaluate him. He recommended that our son also start taking Setraline (generic for Zoloft). But two months later, things are actually worse. I've moved away from processed foods, simple carbs and sugars. He vehemently resists everything (including exercise). We have him in weekly (talk) therapy, but the counselor reports "a solid wall." We're praying a lot, and trying to stay calm and reasonable, but we're absolutely flummoxed. ANY suggestions would be appreciated!!!!!
