Since Clonidine is built up in the system it doesn't "wear off" so much as stims do, so it may just be a behavior issue.

A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.

they gave him Clonidine to control the adhd?

my daughter is on Concerta and they gave her the Clonidine to help her sleep.. That's the main reason I've heard they use it is to help them sleep..
