Darn! Bear with me as I try to remember (I'm old!).
Meds: Quetiapine 50 mg (just increased from 25 mg), Lamotrigine 25 mg, both @ hs.
He received comprehensive neurological and physical examinations while in hospital last year. He was in a Children's Psychiatric Unit and under the care of a psychiatrist for that 3 week period. He had a repeat EEG a couple of months ago. However, my daughter just found out, when she called the hospital unit seeking help, that he was also diagnosed with ODD (oppositional defiance disorder), although she was not informed of that at the time.
She reached Children's Mental Health Services and an appointment has been scheduled, but not until June 13. She is also planning to get a math tutor for him, as that is the subject he seems to be struggling with at school and one of the things that "sets him off".
I was wrong about when his father moved away - it was January 2008, so 5 years ago, not 4.
On the maternal side, there are no genetic mental illnesses such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, although there is some history of chronic depression. We know no details on the paternal side, although the child's father, in my opinion, is a pathological liar. However, I am not a psychologist or psychiatrist and naturally, have no idea if that sort of thing is genetic or learned behavior. The child has certainly been lying a lot lately.
Sorry, that is all I can recall at the moment. If I have missed an important question, please advise and I will get back to you ASAP. I should be available all evening.
