In February, difficult child 2 weighed <u>89.5 pounds</u>. Back then he was on Abilify 20mg and Focalin XR 60mg. In mid-July, when he had a physical, they said he weighed <u>96 pounds</u>. At the time, he had been titrating up on Depakote ER for two weeks and was at 750mg, and he had only been on 10mg Daytrana for about a week (was off stims about 3 weeks total). On 8/27 at the psychiatrist's office, he weighed <u>86 pounds</u>. He was on 750mg Depakote ER and Daytrana 15mg (which really didn't cut it for his focus and attention). TODAY, I took difficult child 2 to the walk-in clinic for an infected toe -- he weighs <u>82 pounds</u>! He's now at 1,000mg Depakote ER and 20mg Daytrana. His appetite is finally improving a smidgen on the higher Depakote. His focus and attention are good at 20mg Daytrana, but he's a bit wired. I'm a little freaked out about the big drop in weight. Do I just keep pushing the calories and patiently wait for his weight to get back up? He was looking a little on the pudgy side in July, but he reeaally looks thin now compared to the pictures I have from the first half of the year. At the clinic office today and at the psychiatrist's last month, they both thought that there must have been some mistake in the recording of his weight from July. I really don't think there was any error. I think his medications have messed up his appetite again. by the way... he's had two metabolic panels done sine June and they were both completely within normal ranges. Just what I need... more to worry about.
