My son started the Catapres patch a little over a week ago and his issues at school have all but disappeared. His teacher has been telling me that he is much more focused, able to sit longer to concentrate on a lesson, is a bit less impulsive, and his aggression has gone way down. I'm so happy with the results. He seems a tad more tired now but he is still very active but falls asleep easier at bed time. All in all things are looking up here. :)

I have to say the patch was the way to go since he will not take meds via mouth. This patch stays on for 7 days and then you remove it and put a new one back on in a different spot. Love it! :smileywink:

Great! Isn't it the best when you find just the right medication for your child? Medication really can work wonders in kids with ADHD. Glad you found a good match.
