Hi -- I just found this site today. Probably because we had another bad morning getting my 8yo difficult child ready for the bus (finally had to drive). After testing by school and outside docs, we started him on patch in August -- made him nuts. Tried 3 others -- one did nothing, one had other bad effect, last made him pack on a lot of weight (14lbs on small kid) in short time. He's on nothing now, and will be meeting with Dr. next week to find our next step. Meanwhile, we're having a hard time keeping it together here - one minute he's agreeable, next he's typical ODD. Thanks for reading.
