Question re bipolarI have been studying homeopathy for about a year-and-a-half and am new to this forum. I would love any direction you may be able to give. My son has been dx'd with Asperger's/bipolar, and we have done many interventions with him, the most dramatic improvements being shown through dietary means. He has been on a 2mg dose of Abilify for a couple years. I've been trying to wean him off of this, but it's been very difficult. He's off of it for a couple days, and his emotions prove very extreme, becoming agitated over the slightest frustration, non-compliant to any request or suggestion, becoming giddy and excited and very hard to calm down when playing with his brother and sister. He has a real problem with obsessions too, the latest being not wanting to leave a butterfly container wherein three more chrysallids will soon be hatching. When we get angry or even raise our voices with him, it quickly becomes a downward spiral, and he, while very intelligent, cannot be reasoned with in any way. At the end of these 'meltdowns', he often falls asleep.
He is 11 years old, the oldest of our three. Our second son is high-functioning autistic. He's felt particularly close to his brother from the day he was born.
He started perspiring, emitting an odor and everything, when he was maybe 8 or 9.
In running a few of his symptoms on this site's diagnostic software, it recommended lycopodium clavatum for him. Is this what in Miranda Castro's book is labelled simply, 'lycopodium"? In reading her description of this, a lot of it sounds like our son. But I would love to know any further 'enlightenment' on my son that any of you might be able to provide!
Thanks in advance!

Lyc, as its commonly known, is the same as clavatum. You will have to read it to see if it realy fits him.
google 'Allens Keynotes' if you don't have many mm's to read from.
