Meds again... :(

We had an appointment with his psychologist again today, and have agreed to speak with his psychiatrist again about meds. He is unable to focus at school or use his voice in front of others because of extreme anxiety, but last time we tried meds, he was almost hospitalized for his violent rages. He broke my car windshield and punched his teacher... I'm so scared of these meds, but it breaks my heart to see him struggling so much! We are going to try a REALLY mild drug at a REALLY REALLY low dose, to see if he can function better without the "activation" side effect...

It's especially hard for my husband to agree to medication when we fought for so many years to get him off meds through his brain surgeries and implant and all that. Then to medicate for anxiety?!? Ugh.
