Thanks everyone for the advice.

I called the pediatrician this morning (she prescribed meds) and am waiting to hear back.

No Citrus with stimulant meds, or within 2 hours before or after.

Is his Psychiatrist aware of the allergy meds? THey may not be a good mix. Tics can happen with Stimulants, and if they persist he may need to try a different med.

Stimulants work almost instantly, but it can take 2 weeks or so for his little body to adjust to them.

You can see results that quickly, I promise.
