Keep on keepin' on. You're doing what you can, when you can.

Little assvice here...feel free to ignore me. These meds can take a little while to regulate everything. I think the fact that when he was home with you doing things more structured and was well behaved speaks volumes. Is the school working with you in terms of the behavior management, collecting any data on anything? I've found that when kids are night and day between home and school, it's not usually the meds at work.

Just my measly little two cents, might not even be worth that. It sounds like you are doing an amazing job with him!

This is such a difficult diagnosis and treatment protocol for a child. Meghan's right that it can take a while to regulate the levels in a child's body. Give it time, and I hope that the little boy that you saw this weekend is the one who emerges once the medication levels are where they're supposed to be.

I know this is hard on all of you.

Ms. C

Just a big hug for you today. I wish there was something that I could say or do...
Please take a moment (like right now!( to stop and think about how you really are a competent parent.

Leonie

you are doing GREAT!!!!! The other two girls are right it can take up to a month for things to settle and come into balance (sorry no quick fixes) hang in there and yes i do hope that the school is providing you with some behaviour management support, if not seek out that great OT and your pead. they should be able to help you. You are not incompetent just in new rocky waters, this is unfamiliar territory for you and its hard, not to mention the other 3 little munchkins too... take care

Must be tough to deal with this. Big hug and thinking of you.

Big hugs! And yeah - saying "ME TOO."
I know with anti-depressants, they take a while to work properly in a person's system. Unless your doctor disagrees, I'd give it a while longer before I give up on the medication.

Hi! My son has ADHD. He is going to be 9 in two weeks. He's been on medication since he was 5. We went through about 4 different kinds before finally getting on the Daytrana patch. He's been on that for about a year now and I can't tell you how its changed our lives. Its hard to get a kid to swallow a pill when they don't swallow pills and capsules you can pour into food sometimes don't last all day, so the patch is heaven sent. People have told me I shouldn't drug my son. People have looked at me like I suck as a mother when he's had his tantrums. You name it, we've been through it. I've cried, I've felt guilty, I've felt like I am the worst mom ever.

I've been through everything you're going through with J and if you have any questions, please feel free to email me.
