1st of all how old is your son?
Wellbutrin is an antidepressant medication.
You may have thoughts about suicide when you first start taking an antidepressant, especially if you are younger than 24 years old. Your doctor will need to check you at regular visits for at least the first 12 weeks of treatment.
Call your doctor at once if you have any new or worsening symptoms such as: mood or behavior changes, anxiety, panic attacks, or if you feel impulsive, irritable, agitated, hostile, aggressive, restless, hyperactive (mentally or physically), more depressed, or have thoughts about suicide or hurting yourself.
Please take care.

I am so sorry as it sounds like your son has had a run of bad luck and has turned to drugs. Do you know what he is using? Also his Doctor should know as this is probably why the AD is not working for him.
Who is taking care of the baby, does Mom have custody of the baby?
I am just thinking of all the things he might be able to do to find help. I know he can report Mom for her behavior as the baby is in need of intervention by Social Services.
I am sure as a Mother you are at your wit's end and afraid for your son and grandchild.
Keep posting to us.
Its been a week now sinse my grandbaby went with his mother. My son has been doing better now that he is away from the mother. He had to pick up his daughter yesterday at the address she gave him. No love loss between the great grandma and my son. But she was the only one who would take her and the baby in. Don't really know if she is living with her. She wants my son to drop the baby off at a park in our town.
However, we had a nice visit. We all have calmed down. I am not as anxious as last week. Stress could cause a major colitis flare up for me. I have to talk myself out of this.
Kitt--he smokes some. Sounds like daily, according to my sources, but I have only noticed him hi a half dozen times. He is 19 and can consume alcohol legally, but I have never seen him drunk. Just seen left over bottles. A lot of my generation tried the stuff ourselves and outgrew it pretty soon after we hit 20. I am hoping this will be the case too. Don't know what interactions weed has on anti-depressants.
I am trying to be positive.......Sassy

You are being positive not just trying. I am glad things have calmed down some and glad your son gets to see his baby.
Now if your son can ditch the bad habits perhaps things will be better all around for him. He is so young to be going through so much and I feel your pain too.
I never see my oldest Granddaughter as her Mother and My son divorced years ago. My Granddaughter used to get to visit us when we went to Oregon but now she is on her own and has no desire to have a relationship with us. I have had to accept this as I cannot control other people but I might be real good at it LOL
Kind Hugs to youKitt
