A few days ago, 3 to be exact, Elliott started low dose Zoloft, for anxiety. He has been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and the low dose Zoloft was put in place to help him with that anxiety.
After 3 days on the new medications, Elliott seems to be having some problems.
Out of nowhere he has become extremely hyper. He’s experiencing rapid mood swings and just can’t seem to quit talking.
The first thing that pops into both of our minds is that basically, this is what lead to Gavin being diagnosed with Bipolar disorder.
I don’t even want to go there. I don’t even want to think about it.
Elliott’s only on 5mg of Zoloft, once a day. Is that even enough to have a reaction to?
I will say that it’s bad enough that we kept him home from school today. As soon as 9am rolls around we are calling the doctor and find out what we should do.
If we can’t get a hold of Dr. Reynolds, we’ll get him into the pediatrician.
Is 3 days to soon to see a problem? Maybe it’s just side effects?
Thoughts and advice would be appreciated.
