I agree with Penny, the short term vs long term affect the brain very differently. I would just add that if you haven’t already, I would see if you can find a child psychiatrist. Pediatricians are great (we love ours) but we have really found the best care for our psychiatrist. I completely understand your frustration as we have been there and one that; it is so difficult and confusing to navigate medication. Finding the right doctor will help with that immensely. Good luck!
