I've struggled for over two years with medicine for my twins who are diagnosed with ADHD, OCD and anxiety. We have tried every medicine the doctors (three of them at this point) can think of. One of the stimulants works, slightly but every time they take it they pick at their eyes and lips until they bleed. We tried other medicines with the stimulants but none of them stopped the picking. We stopped the stimulants and tried Prozac to address some of the picking (anxiety). One twin has stopped picking altogether but the other now ties her hair in knots and pulls them out. She is pulling all her hair out in school! I finally stopped the Prozac after a month but she is still pulling and her teacher lets her do it!!! They are very slow in school and are constantly being picked on because of this. Any advice on where I go from here? The psychiatrist said he is out of all medicine options! Some sort of therapy?
Thanks in advance,
