My child is bipolar. She cannot take stimulants and we really didn't want to go the non stimulant route because we were not sure if we would have problems similar to the ones she had on stimulants. So we are trying Clonidine. At first it did make her tired but that went away after a week or so and she was able to focus. Her attitude was better, she was getting up for school without a fight. Then we began giving her, her Lithium and Clonidine together when the tiredness went away. When we did that she started getting aggregated more easily. Having and attitude when she speaks to you. Being unreasonable about almost everything. I am wondering if anyone has had experience with this medication and could us giving the Lithium and Clonidine together be causing this change in behavior? She is 13 by the way. Thanks
