and already I swear I see a small change in difficult child 2. He is more compliant and not as hyperactive or impulsive -- not to say that all his symptoms are resolved at all. It's just that he will actually do what I ask without tons of argument, and without having to nag forever -- just nag a little He's still fairly distracted/distractible and still has a lot of motor activity, but not like before. He still makes some outrageous and somewhat grandiose statements that just leave me thinking WTH did that come from? But overall, I think things are improving -- I hope it's not just my imagination. Is this typical to see with Depakote ER? Or if this is really quick, does it mean we're really seeing the Daytrana and Tenex finally washing out (it was a week on Thursday), OR does it mean his issues are relatively mild and so he's going to respond sooner to a lower dose (he got his second 250mg pill last night)?
