I'm looking to find any advice from parents whose children react badly to stimulants. My difficult child has tried Concerta, Adderrall, the patch (Daytrana) and all have caused horrible side effects, primarily: - not eating - difficulty falling asleep - violent outbursts - facial tics - psychosis (like being abnormally paranoid, etc). He's on straterra, but it's not really doing the job it needs to do and I don't know what else to try. Maybe we're needing to combine it with something. He did have his evaluation last week. The preliminary diagnosis was ADHD with ODD and possible anxiety problems. I will get a full report in about 10 days. Basically he said I need to get the medications correct with his psychiatrist and find what will work and then seek the help of a behavioral psychologist who specializes in children and behavior modification. Anyway, just looking for help as I hate to see him have those horrible side effects, but want him to get the help he needs to calm down and focus.
