Anxiety and ADHD
Question on Medication Side effects for DD
My daughter 9yrs old has Anxiety and ADHD.
She had been on 37.5 mg of Zoloft for 2.5 years and in the time we have tried various stimulants but they all made her much more anxious so she is not on anything for her ADHD issues.
Her doctor suggested an increase to 50mg for her Zoloft and she has been on this dose for a full week.
I have noticed that she is much more jumpy and out of character goofy behaviors; for example while playing friend she was singing but shrieking and the whole time the friend is in front of her trying to get her attention and its as if she is ignoring her. I had to stop the shrieking and it was as if she had no clue friend had even been talking to her.
So my actual question .... could this type of increase in her Zoloft be causing this restless,anxious type behavior???
It just seems like the ADHD has all of a sudden been kicked up a whole notch.
