Hi, I do not post often, but lurk constantly. I just would like some of your input on this situation. My 6.5 year old ds has been on 20mg of alderall xr for about 4 months. He weighs 65 pounds. He was doing wonderfully until recently. Lately he has had some misbehavior at school and a huge meltdown yesterday. He is making noises at school and losing tokens and recess time. He always says he is bored, especially in the evening. His work at school is still very good. Thank God for that! He is becoming more demanding as soon as he gets home from school. Do you think this is a case of the end of school blues? He is in first grade and the youngest in his class. Or do you think his meds are not working as well anymore? We have a follow up appiontment in July with the MD so we can see how he is doing then. Any ideas or thoughts? Thank you!!!
