I have a 5 yr old and a 2 yr old that are both pretty outgoing. My 5 yr old was dx last year with adhd,insomnia, and an anger disorder. He has been on riperdal and clonidine to try and help, but we just started another medicine for the adhd and i am still having so much trouble with him. H is mood changes so fast its unreal. He hits, kicks screams and tries to hurt himself. He is very aggressive to his little brother,me, and his father. I give him his medicine but all it seems to do is put him to sleep. When he wakes up he is so angry. I just don't know what else to do. I have trouble leaving him with a babysitter because no one really wants to ever watch him.View Thread
