We do theraphy and see the physc and I voice myself so much it hurts and its stressfull..needs some advice.. also changed her eating habits and daily routine and she is sometimes listening and sometimes just so unfocused.

I apologize for my delay in response.

It typically takes a med combo to stabilize a child - mono therapy is not enough.

Adding an additional med like Risperdal or Seroquel can be helpful, has your daughter tried either of these?

Have you read THE BIPOLAR CHILD yet? If not, I highly suggest you doing so. You will need to be armed with lots, and lots of info. so you don't go bonkers and have an idea what to do next.

Here is a link to the Bipolar Child Info. site for you to explore: (click on the newsletter link for more good reading).

Take care, and write back anytime (I promise to check in before too long...

Hi momwithtwohats,

You can also look up your daughter's medications including potential side effects by clicking on the Find a Drug link at the top of this board.

Do discuss any medication problems with your child's doctor and pharmacist as they are the best people to advise you.

Take care!

- Annie
