Re: Anyone else have a bipolar child?

My DS was very aggressive and had violent mood swings. He would be sitting watching TV, and then for no reason would get up and go over and start choking his sister. Things like that.

We got him in to a psychiatrist and they took a few months to evaluate him and figure things out. He scored moderately high on all the surverys for bipolar so that's what his diagnosis was.

We had to use a bunch of different meds before we found ones that worked. But I'm glad we did! He's a completely different kid these days. He still has his bad days every once in a while, but I can leave him in a room alone these days without worrying that he'll kill one of his siblings.

Here is a really helpful site with lots of info and stuff:
