My daughter is diagnosed pdd and on zoloft. My son exhibits some adhd behaviors. Our doc. believes his adhd behavior is more associated with anxiety connected a familial/genetic pdd diagnosis (Asperger syndrome). He said he would not treat the adhd with a stimulant first feeling that would only exacerbate son's anxiety. If my daughter continues to do well on zoloft she will then be treated for her add symptoms with another drug. Then the doc. will direct a similar treatment to my son.....only using the zoloft first.

I have seen great results with this doc. I trust his perspective.

> > >I have started a database that keeps track of each and every day and how Mike's behavior is that day. I am already noticing the aggression and disruptiveness coming back little by little. We already have a child psychiatrist but I am not real thrilled with him or the other 2 in the same office.We have already considered looking for another, but we will have to go out of town, as where we are, there is only one other to check out.
> Mike is alot different than alot of kids with this kind of disorder. For the most part he is so withdrawn, you wouldn't even know he is here, but then he just explodes when in a social situation, for no apparent reason. He is very aggressive with other children,which really scares me.I tend to stay away from places where smaller children might be present.
> It really limits us on places to go because he just doesn't do well at all when we go anywhere there are alot of people. That is why I am getting to where I am relying on the internet for information and just some support. It kind of isolates us from the world also, as people tend not to visit because they don't know how to handle him and it's hard to take him anywhere. We have very little family support and have exhausted our supply of babysitters!
> It's just nice to be able to "talk" to someone.Thanks!
