My son is struggling with having an appetite he pulls at strings on his clothes and he picks at his skin particularly on his fingers to bleed how can I help him any suggestions please.
He is taking dexmethylphenidate 15mg in a.m along with clonidine .1mg half tab. @12 & 3 half tab of dexmethylphenidate 5mg. And at night whole tab clonidine .1mg usually @ 7pm. I am overwhelmed wondering if this is too much? Why havent we switched to a new medication yet? He doesn't want to eat in mornings. I have to remind him to keep eating. Doesn't want to eat really until after 8pm. He is still so unfocused and hyper. He has recently started hitting kids alot more! Any advice is welcomed please! I feel like I'm failing him! He is such a loving friendly boy. Breaks my heart seeing other students afraid of him. Though I understand why they are.
