B's Rage

     So, we're taking B off the Citalopram. Her incidence of insomnia and rage did not go away with a lowering of the dose. She was engaging in dangerous and abusive behaviour at home and at school. Apparently citalopram can cause bipolar like symptoms, and boy, has she been having those. It sucks to wish your child was just morbidly depressed again.
     The past month has been stressful, and even though the school year is essentially over, I've still taken her out of school for the remainder of the year. I don't want her getting a reputation for disruptive behaviour at school when it's meds, and it just isn't safe for her or the workers.
    On the plus side, I've been doing a LOT of walking. For exercise, stress relief, and mental housekeeping. Cheaper than drinking.

 I really hope the insomnia and rage stop with the meds. Hope for us.


  1. I've been a silent reader for a long time but I feel like now is a good time to comment. you haven't posted in a long time and I miss hearing about B. Any chance you'll get back into the swing of blogging?

    1. Hi! Sorry, things just got very intense for awhile. I've started again. Thank you for reading and asking. :)
