My 5-y-old has "anger overload" issues. When his switch flips he hits, kicks, bights and now says he will kill you. He is on a low dose of zolof and seems to have help some. Has anyone had the same issues and what are the solutions. This has been noticeable issue from age 2. Please send any solutions or suggestions. We have looked at diet and follow healthy eating and allow water or whole milk.



Thanks for your help and suggestions.

Um, I wasn't judging..... I was asking a series of questions that actually pertain to your question. Geez.....and you STILL have not answered my question. What has he been diagnosed with in order to have been put onto Zoloft? This information would help ANYONE in helping you. Zoloft is prescribed for VARIOUS disorders, and it would be very helpful for people to know the diagnosis.



It is also helpful to know how long he has been taking it for because it takes time for these things to kick in.



You think I'm judging you? Seriously....... **shakes head **



Fine, ask for help but don't provide necessary information, because that totally makes sense.

Add a "t" to zolof and you get zoloft. I'm looking for a parent who may be having or had the same issues. I do not need a judge thank you. The doctor suggested this after being released from the 4-th school/structured day care. Yes, he sees two and we just started a third to see if they could understand why he goes into extreme anger.

Firstly, why is he on zoloft (I assume that's what you meant)? Secondly, how long has he been on it? Finally, if he is on Zoloft, I am also going to assume he is in therapy? In which case, I think it is a good idea to talk to his therapist, who would know him better than we do.
