in peoples' systems? difficult child was doing good, great with daytrana. In the last 2 days things have been awful. Very upset, wound up, tearful about tiny things, and VERY argumentative. I guess he almost got kicked out of the pool today for a disagreement with another child, and then argued with the lifeguard. We haven't had these things happen since before Lamictal. I am NOT putting the patch on him tommorrow, and will talk to psychiatrist about lowering dose. Their is only 1 lower dose. This is what happened on Adderall, Depakote, Lithium, and Focalin, just to a smaller degree. With all the other medications the symptoms snowballed and got very bad.
