This is a case study of a child with serious neuropsychiatric disorders who was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Depression, Separation Anxiety, Neonatal Seizures, and a Developmental Encephalopathy secondary to subarachnoid hemorrhage. This reversal design case study, while not a controlled study, suggests that a high risk child with chronic irritability and explosive outbursts can be stabilized on an innovative neuropsychiatric medication protocol, without the use of antipsychotic medication, when combined with residential treatment and psychotherapy.
