Hi--all the psychiatrist had to offer was that he had ADHD and no other psychological disorder? He literally barely gets out of bed?
Yes. He has no job and says he can't do an hourly job. He wants to design websites. He has done that, but he will get in the middle of a project and then go crazy on meds again. It's almost as if he is afraid to succeed. The psychiatrist says he needs talk therapy. He gave no other disorder.
The counselor who he saw a couple years ago, says he has no adhd. Kyle is manipulative and has an over-glorified view of himself. There is a name for that disorder...can't remember it. But our problem is trying to get him off these meds.
We took him to a holistic doc ($3300) who did a saliva test. It showed a high level of cortisol (not sure that is right). We were making progress, but Kyle didn't get the buzz from the vitamins that he would from the pain meds.
Thank you for working on this with me.
Are some of the meds those that you have to wean him off of. My husband is his drug dealer and lays them out in the morning and evening as prescribed. Except for Trammadol...doc says he can have 2 every 4 hours. Am I crazy for thinking that the docs are crazy?
My husband did tell him that he would not give him anymore Trammadol unless he got out and walked. So yesterday he walked a short distance.
I'm not sure at this point. He has convinced himself that he needs all of them. I wonder if he has fried his brain. He did tell the psychiatrist that he takes the meds when he feels he needs them. So even though my husband is giving them at the prescribed time, he may not be taking them right.
That's right. He says he still has too much pain. He is alkso addicted to chewing tobacco. Not sure where he is getting his money for that other than scrounging around our house for money.
Our son was happy-go-lucky prior to pain killers. People liked him. Now they avoid him.
He was playing a lot of sports and I am thinking that the fractured back from 5th grade may have been irritated...not sure. Once he got started on the drugs, he told our family doc that he needed stronger ones. And the doc gave him whatever he asked for.
Thank you so much for your help. That sounds good. I will contact those docs on Monday. You are a voice of reason. Blessings to you and your family.
