Medication, counseling, low fat diet type food in the house, understanding and lots of love. Good luck. Hope this helps.

Are you using behavior therapy in conjunction with medication? That has helped my son a little. He role plays to know how to act in certain circumstances. Rewards (charts, prizes and verbal praise) and consequences (nothing physical, but loss of privileges like TV, computer, early bed time, etc.) helps. Also, it is critical to try to keep emotion out of your voice when reprimanding; keep it very matter of fact. It's a kind of positive reinforcement when they get you all riled up for something they've done. About the weight, not sure. What does your doctor say about that?
