Hi I'm new here, I have a 16 yr. old daughter who when was younger was diagnosed and treated for ADHD, although it did help her academically she still had lots of problems with keeping friends as she can't understand personal space, lying, stealing etc. Getting older symptoms got worse and upping meds didn't help. She then in high school was told she doesn't have ADHD she was suffering post traumatic stress taken straight off Ritalin and sent to see a physiatrist who is diagnosing her with mood dis regulation. At first she was put on a antidepressant which sent her off the rail doing stupid things (high mood) she then had to take quetiapine to level her out. To us she keeps getting worse at the moment about every two weeks she has an episode and will run away, I don't know where she is, she not taking the quetiapine (she was taken off the antidepressant as wasn't really depressed anymore) , very rude and disrespectful to me and stealing money from family members. I am at my wits end with coping with my health problems plus 3 other kids I'm exhausted. I really believe it is bipolar, her biological father has it, looking back she is reminding me of all the bad stuff that he did, it's exactly the same. Please does anybody have any ideas or agree that it is more than just mood disregulation disorder.
