Okay let me introduce myself first as I am new to this forum, my name is Barbara, I am 30 yo mother to three awesome kids who make each day one I fight for. My eldest Linda and beside something of a klutz she is fine. My middle daughter is Danae she is 5, she is diagnosed with ADHD, and then the youngest my son Eric has been diagnosed with a developmental delay, speech delay, ADHD and we are trying to rule out Aspergers for him. So what actually brings me here is Danae. She was initially diagnosed with ADHD about a month ago. We had behavior issues for a while but the doctors didnt bother trying to listen to me when I brought it up. We went to a new doctor for a physical and I mentioned the concern for her behavior because, it was affecting her schooling. She came home everyday with a different note ranging from her inability to listen to the lesson, to the impulsivity, being an almost constant distraction to her classmates. The teacher and I took the questionaires, and after the dr reviewed them and saw Danae again officially diagnosed ADHD, and we put her on Adderall XR 5mg, and started behavior therapy. I noticed the difference in her the first day, she actually sat down to eat her food, without fidgeting, without getting up every 10 seconds, she was able to think enough to form the thought and communicate it verbally and not stutter while saying it, at school the teacher noticed the difference as well, were before Danae was falling below grade level in the two weeks on Adderall she moved up a reading class. Then we went to the follow-up, we got a script to continue on the Adderall, the problem when I got to the pharmacy, they said United required pre auth. The doctors office tried to get the prior auth and was denied stating that Danae needed to try another medication before they would cover the adderall. Giving the options we were dealt they changed Danae to dexedrine er spanules, since staring this medication Danae is Jeckyl and Hyde, she is either running like there is no tomorrow or depressed, has trouble sleeping waking at 5am after going to bed after midnight, she overreacts to simple situations often breaking down in tears screaming she's not pretty, she's stupid, no one loves her. She has very strange interaction with her peers and with her siblings today she ran off the school van, screaming and running as if someone was going to kill her. The homework that two weeks ago took 45 minutes now take us 2-3 hours to complete, her impulsivity is out of control, she is bouncing off the walls, and nothing is stopping her, not even hurting herself. Her attention span is from nil to non-existent. I have statements from her regular teacher, her reading teacher, her van driver, her daycare teacher, my mom, her boyfriend and my coworker, all stating how Danae has changed on this medication. My question is it hasnt been thirty days, I cant just stop the medication suddenly because she would go into withdrawl, I am appealing UHC decision to give her the Adderall, What am I supposed to do next? How more can I help her. I am worried that that the things she says about herself that she believes them. What am I supposed to do, does anyone can anyone tell me how to get her insurance to work with me instead of against me, or any programs that will help with the Adderall XR prescription costs?
