My son was an A student never a phone call HM or in trouble,but ever since he started this med or methaltreate not sure witch he has been very angry having behavior problems,I get phones calls every day from school...
Do you mean Methotrexate and meloxicam? I am assuming he has rheumatoid arthritis? Neither one has a side effects of anger or behavior changes. Sometimes children will react this way when something happens beyond his control and a lifelong disease like rheumatoid arthritis could trigger angry feelings in a child plus the fact that it is painful and pain can make people short with others and grumpy. Couple that with the fact that boys, at a certain age (between 13 and 30, sometimes longer) are just angry by nature. I saw both of my sweet little boys turn 13 or so and turn into little sour, crabby hateful spites! It can just be hormones. They get better as they approach their mid twenties. Talk to his Dr about what you are seeing. If they think it is more than usual "boy" behavior then they may have him seen for a psychiatric eval.
