The doctor just called. They will be taking my daughter off the Concerta, if they can get her to agree to take a new medication. She freaked out and demanded to stay on Concerta, saying she needs it to concentrate. She wasn't even open to a discussion about it. I told the doctor to tell my difficult child that if she is not medication compliant then I would not pick her up for a home visit. (if she ever behaves well enough to warrant a visit) The doctor wants to try Strattera to address her ADHD and a new mood stabilizer, she couldn't remember the name of it, is starts with a Z. She is going to call me back and let me know what it is. They don't want to try Lamictal as it is really for the deppressive state and not so much for mania. Well that's what she said anyway. So now we are just waiting for my daughter to agree to the medication change. Hopefully soon. Like today!!! I told the doctor to make sure she tells my daughter that the Strattera also has a loss of appetite effect as she is very concerned about gaining weight. She put on 30 pounds with the last medication combo. (which did not include Concerta) I'll keep you posted. Thank's for listening.
