Our 17 year old son was first diagnosed with major depression, then ADD. He was seeming to get a little better on zoloft, when we added adderall, a stimulant, in an effort to help him with ADD. A few days later, he took 30 tylenol pills.
He is now in the hospital for monitoring, but is adamant that he doesn't want to go into a partial (half-day) hospitalization program. His regular psychiatrist is adamant that this is the only and best option for him.
Any parents out there who have had to deal with a similar situation? How did you handle it? Any ideas appreciated.
