For Tegretol to take effect? I get it, I get it! Although difficult child 2 was very tired this morning, and he reported that he literally fell asleep in class before the morning recess, this evening he is BOUNCING off the walls. He said he's tired, but his mind is racing. Great. He also got two or three demerits today for talking too much. And he forgot half of his homework materials at school (and I didn't think to ask today because he's been really good about remembering lately) but I didn't learn this until 5:00 because he never sat still long enough to work on his homework! Well, I know we need to stick with this medication because it hasn't even been a week yet. I'm putting him to bed early tonight in hopes it will help him tomorrow.
