My son is 8 almost 9. We can not get his adhd meds leveled out and his bipolar meds leveled out. His adhd meds wear off by 130 and his bi polar meds work unless his rage fits are prevoked. IT can be as simple as a fit over an oreo. He is getting cps called and has lied to cps when he was mad about domestic violence occurring. Now cps is in our home a lot. Mental health is not very avaliable here and a lot of adhd meds are black balled by the medical field cuz the high drug abusers in the area. I need to know how people control his rages. Nothing seems to work. They are 99.9% in public when he has them. I am scared for me and my daughter because he threatens to burn us alive and drown us in our sleep. I use to be able to do the hold on him but now he is almost as tall as me. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First whatever medicine he was on that works you can always write an appeal to the insurance company for him to receive it again. Secondly I know you are doing all you can but try to find a place that will take him for a while. A behavioral center. This will help exactly figure out what meds he needs and how much with therapy to boot. My son has adhd and acts out alot as well. Best of luck.
