I’m relatively new on here, just reading posts and most I can relate to...I’m just pulling at straws lately, trying to get the help my 9 year old son needs. I’ve enrolled school psychologist, private psychologist (we love him but I dong see any real progress in my son), so now we have an appointment to see a second psychologist as well as additional psychological testing (first done at age 6). We live his psychiatrist and he is currently on 3g of Intuniv (prescribed by pedi early on and not sure it’s of any use), 20 mg of vyvanse (worked for first three months, now i don’t notice much), and recently started Prozac because of his emotional unstability (was on Zoloft and worked for two months then not). The kid is so angry and argumentative. It’s his way or the highway. He’s started talking bad about himself, losing friends, getting into trouble at school for saying inappropriate things. He tells his sister “F- you” when he loses a board game. Fights with his three year old brother. Talks about taking revenge against kids at school who “betray” him, aka tattle tail on him. I’m wxtremely concerned! I’ve spoken to our church priest who has also spoke to him. He can be an extremely agreeable, sweet kid one minute and a real jerk the next. Not sure what to do but he’s putting a real strain on me, my relationship w my husband, and our entire family. Please help me. I feel so hopeless.
