difficult child was not doing well in July, he was definately cycling. Hypomanic, and some depression also. This was also a very busy month/time of year. We had husband and easy child's bdays, fair, the fourth of July, a wedding, a trip to the beach and a camping trip. Could all of this activity have triggered his cycling? Once life calmed down among other things, difficult child is better. We lowered his dose of Lamictal to see if it was activating him, and have not put him back on Daytrana. I have some patches available if necessary for school, but while difficult child is still extremely active, I can redirect him and can even get him to lower his voice most of the times. He has been doing his chores with reminders, but he does them. Just curious what others have seen in their own difficult child's.
