Topaz1968 Posted September 14, 2011 Report Share Posted September 14, 2011 My DS is 10 and just entered 5th grade. He was diagnosed with TS and Pandas about 1 1/2 years ago. He has been on Antibiotics (Augmentin) off and on during this time, as well as 2 trials with Tenex and 1 trial with Clonazapem. He has also had 2 steroid treatments. He sees Dr. B in CT. He does not like taking pills, I literally have to force him and give him a treat afterwards, so it has been hard with the huge ABX pills. I also want him to take Motrin - but he refuses. Again, the taste bothers him. I am sure this is part of his OCD. His OCD, anger and tics come and go in waves. I never know when to expect them. He recently had contact with someone who had strep, but immediately went back on the ABX. I am trying to get him a different pill that might be easier to take, but we need to see the Dr. first. He goes to therapy 2 times a month for CBT and also sees the social worker at school. He currently has a 504 plan that I am going to have adjusted slightly this year. Anyway, here are my questions... He is a super fussy eater, and I know there are certain foods he should not eat and foods that might be better for him. He does eat fruits and veggies, but other than that - he is a big chicken nugget and hot dog eater. Any suggestions as to where I can find some dietary information? Is there something other than Motrin that might help - or does it come in a different type of pill than the orange one? Is there an antibiotic out there where the pill is smaller? Any thought on how to help control his OCD and anxiety - either with meds or therapy? His OCD is not that he is afraid of things - he just likes to have things "perfect". I am thinking about finding a Child Psychiatrist that can prescribe medications. We have not thought about IVIG as I am not sure that is the route I want to take. Thanks so much, in advance, for any advice you could give me. I have researched and researched and I am utterly confused right now. Rachel Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
