My 12 year old daughter has been becoming very frustrated VERY easily and cries at the drop of a hat and is tired all the time. She takes at least an hour nap when she gets home from school and then goes to bed at 8:30. I took her to the same psychiatrist that my other 13 yo daughter (she has adhd ) and I go to (I am bipolar). They said that they think she has disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder and put her on 10 mg of abilify. I have not seen a difference in her yet she's been taking it for a month. I've read some things about this disorder and her symptoms are similar to that. Has anyone else ever received this diagnosis for their child? If so what meds were recommended? I just want to help her feel better.
