I haven't posted here in a while. My last post I was asking about an adhd medication called procentra. He started this a few weeks ago. I can't really tell much of a difference in his behavior at home. He is in summer school and I did not give it to him the first day. I have given it to him each day since and the teacher said she can tell a huge difference. Since the medication only last about 4 hours, I can tell when it wears off because he starts getting really hyper and running everywhere. She actually used the word, "awesome day". He never got that that his regular school. Even though he can take this medication up to 3xs a day, I just give it to him in the am. Here is my major concern. The more I read about adhd medications, the more freaked out I get. To make a long story short, my son was born a twin. His twin brother passed away suddenly when they were 20 months old. His death was ruled SUDC(sudden unexplained death in childhood). I've been reading adhd medications can cause sudden death. I'm just totally beside myself on this. I know the odds of it happening are so slim, but our odds are not good. We had to do ivf to get pregnant, then we had a 1 in 100000 chance of having a child die to SUDC, then a 1 in 142 chance of having a child with autism. Then I debate about just not giving it to him at all. He has a psychiatric appointment. thurs. What about a non stimulant? He only get 2ml at a time, which is not much, but will he build up a resistance to it?
