      Can anyone help with adhd and explosive anger?! I’m having a very difficult time with my 13y/o who is resisting restrictions! He is very aggressive, mostly negative and always disrupts the household! He has been on adderall for 3 weeks and I feel he’s gotten a bit more aggressive! He has a difficult time with emotions and communication. I’ve been reading about medication for anger control but don’t love the options. Does anyone have experience and things that have helped?!! Thank you!!🙏🏻

      Hi Kathleen,
      So sorry to hear that! I would talk with your psychiatrist, but I know in my practice I have seen stimulants periodically increase agitation and aggression. I know my son takes Zyprexa and his irritability and anger almost went completely away. He is taking it to increase his appetite, but it has stabilized his mood considerably. He doesn’t have ADHD, so it’s a different scenario.

      I would also ask this in the facebook group.
