difficult child has been on Daytrana for about 2 weeks. We started at the lowest 10 mgs, and now are to 15mg, the 2nd lowest. I do think it is helping, and has minimal side effects for him. (Cross fingers.) We have had several nights where he was really grumpy, but we had a he## of a week. Monday we were in the ER untill midnight, so of course Tuesday he was tired as he did not want to miss school. Wednesday his teacher told him he would not be placed in the same classroom or even the same side of the building as his best friend. Actually the best friend told Cody that the teacher said that. It may be a request from the friends mom, as the other boy does not get in much trouble, except when around Cody. They have been better the last 1/4 of school. So Wednesday Cody was hysterical, crying and almost hyperventilated. Yesterday was much better. No meltdowns and no irritability. We went fishing and had a good time, but easy child was acting up. Pre teens are awful. I did not see any problems with Daytrana before Monday, but it has been so crazy. Now I am doubting myself. Am I in denial or just being reasonable? Anyone have an opinion?
