    But we still need to treat the ADHD. We took him off of Strattera because it was making him sick and now he is so angry and violent and stopped reading or doing anything because he can't concentrate. And everything is my fault only and he tells me 24/7 how awful I am to him when ever I do something he just said he wanted more than anything. It's like he's possessed!!!!

    I'm Bipolar too and having trouble fixing my meds so this is a nightmare I understand all to well. Right now it's obvious to me Bipolar and ADHD are the biggest problems. His Tourette's seems to have gone into hiding.

    Then there is his sister....

    I'm just sitting here everyday now wondering how on earth something like this could happen. How could I have done this to these beautiful children? What am I supposed to do now? I can't fix myself right now much less be what they need me to be. And then your "team" and "support" fight you on everything......

    What else have you tries for your child besides Intuive? (Which BTW they first prescribed for his Tourette's and now for ADHD?!?!?)

    Hi Mom,

    I'm not sure who's post you were replying to........but it sounds like you need support.

    What meds is your son currently on? How old are your children? Is their father in the picture?

    What about his pdoc? Is he a good one?
    You need a plan of action and people on your team.

    I'm sorry life is hard right now. Write back !
