My son is 12 and is extremely brilliant. Just took SATs and scored higher than 5% of high schoolers who took them. He is high strung most of the time and alwaysstrives for the A++ He does not take criticism well Has had lots of social problems and fears. When he is in a high extreme situation he has to run to the bathroom and often vomits. SOme examples, thew up for 1.5 hours before going to airport to take a class trip and once at airport and with friends he was fine. Threw up during a sleep study we had done to see if there was a neurological disorder. Completely panicked and froze and ran out of a school dance lke a caged animal because he didn't want to be there and although he can dance and was asked to by all the kids/teachers chose to stand alone. I can give countless others. He has been in therapy and now I unfortunately feel we have nochice but to put him on meds. Also he has/always had trouble going to sleep, staying asleep and always wakes earlyI am afraid of this. Although he has never said he wold commit suicide he has said he cannot take this anymore and I cannot do this anymore.The doctors have said, zoloft (why he is IBS D), lexapro(I hated this), celexa, prozac. I am afraid of the teen suide rate. I dont' want to make him more D. I don't want to make him totally zoned out. He has tried tyelonlPM for when he has had trouble sleeping.I wondered if maybe a xanax type thing for when we know a big anxiety producing event comes but that doesn't help with daily social issues.Does anyone have any insight? I really would appreciate your help. I loved this group when I was in full throttle IBSD and could have never survived without it.
