My 20 year old daughter has been on Starterra for ADHD for approximately 8 years. 3 months ago dosage was increades from 60 to 100 mg. Last week she starting hallucinating and being very paranoid.
Dr. took her off straterra and put her on zyprexa. She is now taking 20 mg daily. Hallucinations are gone, but she is still very paranoid and cannot be left alone. (My husband or I constantly supervise her).
We are hoping that once straterra is out of her system, she will improve and not need zyprexa, What can we do about her ADHD? she simply cannot focus or concentrate on anything without medication, even reading has become impossible for her. I am very hesitant to put her back on any ADHD medication, because of side effects.
Also she is not seeing a therapist and we would like her to see a cognitive behavioral therapist to help her deal with this crisis, Can you refer us to someone?
