The doctors are giving my DS pill after pill and he's only getting worse. He has severe anxiety and aggression that prevents him from staying in school. It seems like the only people that tolerate him is his immediate family. The dr said if this last pill starts keeping him up and decreases his appetite, we can add Ambien and a blood pressure patch. The pills are narcotics.
I looked into Medical Marijuana and here in California, you can get it for a kid if a dr prescribes it. My family thinks that is a horrible idea. My mom says, "No way, that is a gateway drug! It will kill his brain cells!" I asked her if legal Speed is a better idea. She told me to stop talking crazy.
Maybe I am talking crazy. The teachers, the day care providers, the drs, the behavior, it's all making me crazy. I'm desperate.
** Yes he is in therapy. He loves his therapist.
***Also, medical marijuana for kids is only available in pill form and edible. Kids cannot smoke it and I wouldn't dare do it either. The smoke it what burns the lungs.
***I've exhausted the other options (dyes, only protein, natural pills like Vaxxa). He's been like this since...I can remember. Even as an infant I knew and everyone could tell he was different.
The other day he threw himself against the walls and floor, growling and screaming "I want to die." I'm desperate to help my DS.
***His dx is severe ADHD and anxiety. It may be PTSD.Answer Question

I don't see the difference with this and any other drug your doctor prescribes - if it works for your child, then that's all that matters.
