What is a child with intermittent explosive disorder?

Odd diagnosis! I presume that this means severe temper tantrums with violence. Depending on age, temper tantrums should disappear. When they continue the commonest cause is diet! Seems strange? Please go to my blog "oxygen, the spark of life" that you cam google.

Get treatment. If you've diagnosed yourself in this way, please see a psychiatrist to be sure it's accurate. If a psychiatrist or psychotherapist has already evaluated you and given you this diagnosis, please work with them on the treatment approach they suggest.

Looking for doctor's dealing with intermittent explosive disorder in adults with downs' syndrome. Numerous meds./counseling-no help. Where can we go?

Tough situation. My guess is that this will require a careful look at the overall health status, current meds, and neurological examination. Adults with ds do sometimes suffer gradual neurodegeneration, which can be manifest in dysfunctional behavior. But ied may just be the way a ds individual expresses frustration about something more mundane. Look for a neurologist with training in both peds and adult medicine.

How can I deal with a son with tourette's, ocd, adhd, oppositional defiant disorder and intermittent explosive disorder?

Many ways. I have had success with this combination of problems without using psychiatric drugs. At the block center we look for the underlying cause which can be diet, nutritional deficiencies, allergies, processing problems or many other medical and educational problems.
See a Specialist. When a child has a very complex set of problems, seeing a specialist, a doctor qualified through education, training and experience, is the best course of action. When someone, even a doctor, proposes a " simple fix" for the complexities, ask yourself why all the other professionals do use the " simple answer" and that is because they usually do not work.
Get expert help. Your son is very complex. So the meds will be too. But don't think of him as all these separate disorders. He really is 1 person w/ 1 complicated mental health dysfunction manifesting with symptoms of these various textbook diagnoses. I start with treatment of 1 problem, then move on to other issues. Each issue improved, makes the next problem easier to solve. He needs some success, and so do you.
You need a QB. The triad of tourette's, adhd & OCD is pretty common. Medication management used to be tough; even though he probably needs more than one medication, there are safe combinations now. It's coordination of medical, therapeutic, educational & family -support services for which you need a quarterback. Contact www. Tsa-usa.
