She started out fine then she started having severe mood swings. I mean she has always been kind of grouchy but she started saying she hates herself and everyone and everything. She says she is trash and she is ugly. I HAVE never heard her say such things before. She is usually a loving child but she was starting to scare me. She says she doesn't like me or her dad and hates her life. I did not know what was going on at first then I saw a lot of mothers say that srtaterra had made their children moody. I just took her off of it today. WE will see how it goes. She has never taken a medication that has made so mean before. So I assume it's the straterra. She did not start acting this way until I put her on it. I was so scared I thought she might have a mental illness. I'm hoping she gets better. I am taking her to her doctor on Monday for blood work so they can check everything to make sure it's not something there. I'm glad I found you guys! Your input has helped a lot.
