Hi my son is 10 years old he has been on focalin since he's 5 years old and has been on prozac for one year. We are currently in the middle of weening him off of both and his doctor put him on catapres to take the place of focalin while weening him off.

He is angry/aggressive/crying/jumpy and frustrated..is this normal?
