psychiatrist just prescribed difficult child 2 a small dose of Focalin for his ADHD, since the Intuniv didn't seem to be helping as much as it should. I really really wanted to avoid a stimulant at all costs, since difficult child 1 had such a psychotic reaction with the smallest dose several years ago. With her, the school actually called me and told me they were going to expel her if I didn't get her off this medication ASAP, because her behavior was ten times worse on the medications. She also hallucinated and saw her stuffed animals coming to life and trying to kill her. The whole experience was a nightmare that I do not wish to live again. difficult child 1 is bipolar and difficult child 2 is not, so maybe that will make a difference on how the medications affect my son. For all I know he may be bipolar and it hasn't come out yet. Of course I'm thinking about every worse case scenerio. I decided to trust psychiatrist and give this new medication a go. I didn't have time to get the prescription last night after the appointment, so I will be picking it up after work today and will give him his first dose tomorrow. I will be waiting with baited breath to see if I get any phone calls to pick him up from school tomorrow. My son already has anger issues and I am really hoping the new medication does not bring it out in him. For now I am praying for him and hoping for the best.
