New and Needing Help!!
Hi. I have a 9 year old boy. He has never been dx with anything except speech issues. He has some autism traits, ocd, and adhd. He has always wanted to control things, has anger issues, social issues. Lately he has been stealing, he only has a couple of friends. He has been seeing a ped. psychologist for years. He gets angry so easily and says whatever. He has no filter. He does ok in school. He had a playdate on Saturday and they were playing Minecraft. My son kept killing his friends animals but when his friend did it to him he got so angry. Said he hated him, didn’t want to ever play with him again. He is always so sorry after he has a episode like this. My husband and I talk to him and try to help him. We don’t know what to do anymore. The Dr. put him on Prozac last summer, we have not seen a change now they are talking about a adhd med. I guess my question is what is a good med for anger and impulsive issues?? Just needing feedback! Thank you!
