Help! Our son is physically abusive to his sister and us. He has been diagnosed with bipolar and ADHD. He is 16 years old. We live with our bedroom doors locked at night for fear he will hurt us. I don't want to live life like this anymore, but feel if we send him away we are giving up. He is drug and alcohol free, but for how long will that be, he has had drug tested. He has been to many psychologists, physchiatrists, mental health therapy, inpatient setting, etc. He is on lamictal, abilify, aderall, lithium. I am at my wits end. I am afraid to talk to him, wake him up or just disagree with him because of his retaliation. Any suggestions on medication changes? Maybe something we haven't tried. We have had tegretol, depakote, ritalin, respirdal, stratera, concerta, remeron, etc.
