talked with others, have some suggestions/questions.
-is this new behavior?
-is the behavior not new, but far more intense?
-any possible correlaton between increased disruptive behavior and the
start/increase-decrease in a medicine? (Jeremy went ballistic on anaphranyl)
-what's current response to increase in dose?. . .if there's an underlying
OCD or other anxiety disorder, the stimulants can wreak havoc, so a higher
dose could be bad news.
-is treatment being focused singularly on ADD?
evaluated for Tourette's? depression??-- often manifests
itself as aggressive type behaviors in adolescence. . .
To get my book, the "Scoutmaster's Guide to ADD", call Tracy Wright at
Positive People Press (520-749-5465). Tell her you spoke with me about this,
and remind her of the situation.
