Do you not let them play outside or go to their extra activities.. no electronics until the grades go up? What do I do? Hes on Daytrana Patch was 10mg over two weeks did nothing, now I put 15mg over a week ago and teacher said no improvement. Im going to his Dr for the new prescription 2morrow so do I argue to go to 20mg? He only wants to change once a month but I read on the net it can be changed once a week. Also, the insurances will only pay once a month. If my son looses time for another month I don't know how he can catch up. Techniques besides medications? Hes throwing a tantrum now because his school is having a fundraiser at a fast food place and wants to go but we are flat broke to go. ( They just got pizza yesterday anyways- that used the last of spending funds. He claims they demanded him to go all kids there have to! But they suggest and ask us to if we can!
