Well, we have an appointment with the Partial psychiatrist Friday for Dyl. I haven't kept up to date on all the newest, latest, greatest medications out there for ADHD symptoms - and I'm just lookin' to see if anyone knows anything new or has had luck with something after trying others and having none LOL! Dylan has a ton of inattentive issues and alot of hyperactivity issues in school. We've tried Ritalin, Concerta, Metadate, Dexadrine, Strattera, Adderall (the latter 3 are absolute NO GO'S). Clonodine and Tenex (eh, not really interested in those 2 again). Am I missing one? *sigh* I lost track.... Anywhoo...I need to tackle this issue. At the Residential Treatment Facility (RTF), the psychiatrist (genius he is) says "well, if J is doing so well on Concerta and he and Dylan are brothers, the Concerta should work wonders for Dylan too! (oh yes, he really did say that). I thought about it, and thought ok, that sounds dumb, but let's try. He was only on, what I consider to be a small dose (36 mg) for his weight (155 lbs), and it really did nothing. This was toward the tail end of the Residential Treatment Facility (RTF) placement, though, when I just said forget it, I'll find another doctor. I've heard that some kids can do better on larger doses, say, of Concerta. I think I read here one child was on over 100 mg of it. Anyone else hear that? Keep in mind, we're not really looking at a Bipolar diagnosis anymore (does that matter? I dunno...) - more like, maybe Mood Disorder, sorta - someday? But, Autistic. Does that matter? LOL I dunno. Just looking for thoughts on the stims. Not really sure what to throw at this psychiatrist, but it's very, very clear that my son needs help with these issues. His current medications are Seroquel (50 mg AM, 175 mg PM, Buspar, 20 mg AM, 10 mg PM). Seroquel doesn't really do anything in the AM - but sure knocks him out cold at night. Buspars been great for anxiety, but didn't help with the ADHD stuff like psychiatrist thought it would. Any thoughts, appreciated. Have a great night every1!
