I would like to look into medication to help with my son's explosive outbursts. He is upset that he cannot control them and I am increasingly concerned about our families safety as he is now bigger and heavier than me.
To add to this, my mental health is suffering as a result of the unpredictable (or sometimes predictable but unpreventable) anger. I want to go to our GP asap and ask for help. I am already on citalopram for panic and anxiety disorder but my son wants to discuss medication for him too.
Can a GP support with this this or will it require referral to CAMHS?
Many thanks for any words of advice.
Have you considered using CBD oil at all?We have used it with great success. It doesn't cure, but does calm our girl down, with less stress and outbursts.
Might be worth looking in to, although a GP is not cleared to recommend it under current legislation, which is sure to change in the coming months/ years!
Thanks for your suggestion about CBD oil, please can you tell me the brand you find works and where it’s from, I am in the UK. I really need to help my daughter with her anxiety she needs help.
We've been using CBD Life's Aqua Drops, which are the only ones my LO will take as they are simply five drops in her Robinsons squash.
Within half an hour she is much more calm and less irritable. Helps with sleep too.
Good luck and let us know how you get on!
