My 8 year old special needs ds, has dx of ADHD, ODD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder,Migraine HA, IBS, and a Mood Disorder Not Specified, which is a fancy way of saying probable BPD. They do not want to officially diagnose him until puberty, but he is still getting the same treatment that he would receive with the dx. Heres my problem. My ds is having these "panic attacks", after weekends off, or after he misses a day of school.He is alm9st impossible to get to school. We dress him, he undresses himself. He hides under his bed. I think if he just wanted to stay home, that he would not have this heightened level of anxiety so bad that it makes him beg to be home schooled. When he finally does get to school, he will break down and cry in the middle of class, and have to bee sent to the counselor or principal. We have been in communication with his teacher, and the school administration. They believe it is simply a bid to stay home. He does have one child whom he insists bullies him, and he insists that his teacher doent like him. He does not experience any academic diffiulty, though. He makes straight A's. My question is, would you speak to his Psychiatrist about prescribing a rescue antanxiety drug to take az he neexs it?
