Hard to say: You have provided no history, so I'll assume no treatment has been started.There are treatments available but these should be coordinated through the kids doc and a child psychiatrist.Proper evaluation of his basic health is needed before any medication is tried. The medications involved have potential side effects so they should be prescribed and followed by someone who does it on a regular basis
