difficult child # 2 is now on day 3 of Vyvanse. So far, so good. I haven't seen any negative effects (yet--fingers crossed). I am only giving him half a pill and we dissolve it in water. He doesn't like the "taste" but that's too bad...He's back to playing his clarient. He said tonight...look mom at my homework--it's so neat and I got it all done at day care. He said he didn't have too much homework--some kids have reading homework, but he finished it in class-- This the first time we are trialing a stimulant. I've been very hesitant becuase of our family history of tourette--Our psychiatrist said we could trial the stimulant--we'd know very soon if it works, however, he actually wrote us a prescription to start trileptal....he thinks this is what we will most likely need-- The p-doctor says he's a complex kid, just like his brother--and will most likely need a cocktail of medications-- I being very cautious--things have been very up and down in our family with difficult child 2(It was just last week I had to officially make him a difficult child.
