Hi all. Well, we went back to the neurologist for our follow up visit. difficult child's Kindergarten teacher submitted her report and along with everything else going on the recommendation is medication. I wasn't surprised and I don't necessarily disagree but am a nervous wreck about possible side effects. I don't want him ending up like a zombie. I know it will help his ADHD not sure what if anything it will do for his ODD. Hoping for the best. husband still giving me a hard time about it. Went into the meeting insisting we weren't putting him on medications but yet couldn't handle 1 day alone with him. Had to call his brother-in-law to help out (I actually had a well deserved night out to myself!!) But at the end of the meeting walked out with prescription in hand. We are starting tomorrow - Focalin XR 5mg to start and see how he does. Anyone have any experience with this drug? Any hints on what I should expect?? I appreciate all of your feedback. Thanks and wish me luck!!!
