easy child/difficult child has been on Trileptal for 3 weeks now bc the psychiatrist suspects he has a mood disorder and not ADHD. Everyone around him can see a clear difference in his demeanor lately since he started this medication. He seems.....happy. And he isn't arguing back nearly as much as he was. The focus and organization are still iffy at best but he's really trying. He's actually making an effort to bring home homework and keep track of things. And that alone makes me want to drop to my knees and praise the lord! lol We saw the psychiatrist yesterday and she decided to increase the Trileptal from 150 mg to 300 mg and decrease the Vyvanse from 70 mg to 40 mg. I'm a little nervous about the decrease in Vyvanse because he's been on it so long and I don't want him to get worse with the focus and organization. She's convinced though that at this point the Vyvanse is doing him more harm than good. We shall see. The good thing is that he can go right back on a stimulant if needed so I guess it's worth a try.
