Is anyone else combining......

conceta and srattera? We have tried every stimulant med they make for my daughter and a few anit-deppressents as well. Nothing worked very well, but untill 6 weeks ago conceta worked better than any of the others. Now that has stopped being as effective and her nurologist has added srattera as well. She also takes imipramine at night to stop bed wetting.

The nurologist said that in his experiance so far stattera alone doesn't work as well by itself as the stimulants, but in combination works very very well.

It is too soon to tell yet if this is going to work, and we have had some bad days because she is very angry about her meds changing, but i am hopefull that soon we will see some real improvments.

I am wondering if any one else is trying this combination, and if it has worked well.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and respond.
