Hi. I’m new here. My 13 year old daughter had been self harming for about 6 months due to high anxiety and “voices in her head” telling her. She has been on sertaline for approx 4 weeks. Immediately it had a positive impact but her tic has got way worse (verbal and motor). She’s now on risperidone too to try and control it. We’ve just been admitted to hospital last night as she took 27 sleeping tablets (melatonin) and she says she did it because the voices told her and she was seeing shadows and people.
She’s a bit better this morning but still has the voices.
Just wondering if anyone out there has had similar experiences or any advice. I’m officially out of my depth now!!
Thanks in advance
