So, I am one of those parents who falls into the extremely hesitant category when it comes to medication. We do fine at home with minimal challenges since The Boy is our only child. His school behavior is still ridiculous. I'm at the point where I feel badly that his aide and teacher have to deal with being scratched several times a week. Any anxiety-producing situation (going to doctors, etc) will make his behavior worse as will his lack of deep sleep (he "looks" asleep but never EVER stops moving). The neuro suggested Clonidine before, and I resisted because they can't say if it will actually put him in a deep sleep or just do what the melatonin already does. And, I don't want him on several different medications. I've been researching and it does sound like Clonidine might benefit him as we think many of his issues are caused by PTSD and the Clonidine impacts that system? I also came across Tenex as a possibility. Has anyone had experience with Clonidine or Tenex?
