Hi, I am brand new here, but feel so much better just reading previous posts by other frustrated parents. Thank you! I have been through hell with my daughter, and the psychiatrist seems to finally be coming around; she said she is thinking of starting her on Abilify, which is in the book I am reading about bipolar kids. She was on Zoloft for a couple years, which helped a lot at first, but became a nightmare later. She had horrible withdrawl, but is finally off of it. I am a single mom with an unsupportive ex who thinks she is just a difficult child. I am just happy to have a place to vent and talk to other parents with similar children. My daughter is demanding my attention now, but I would love to hear from any parents. Thanks so much View Thread
