Parents of ADHD Children
Another med change
Hello everyone. I am a step parent to a 9 year old boy who lives in my home full time. He’s been on meds since age 5. He has ADHD and ODD and was doing great for a while but now the defiant behavior has resurfaced and it’s obvious there is a big chemical change in his brain. We just upped the Paxil about 2-3 weeks ago and he’s become more aggressive, argumentative and destructive. There have been several phone calls from the school and he’s had to be picked up for bad behavior and defiance.
The psychiatrist just changed him from Paxil to Luvox. Has anyone had their child on this drug? I am looking for some feedback because I have never heard of it.
