Hi, haven't been here in awhile--we're on a pretty even keel right now, although I think my son needs a med change. I'm waiting until summer so that school's not an issue with adjusting. He's on Adderall XR 15 mg, and can't go to 20 mg because it makes it so he can't sleep at night. I think I may ask to try him on Strattera.

I also wanted to let you know that I host the Adults with ADD/ADHD board on ivillage Health; been the cl for a few months now, so I'm not too lost anymore! LOL For any of you parents here who deal with this fun stuff yourselves, you are welcome to hop over for a visit! We have a fun, warm and caring group there and are always happy to have newcomers! As you know from being here, it's always good to have other people to relate to.

Just a bit about my family--I have ADD, my dh has ADHD, my 12 yo ds has ADD, and my 10-yo dd has ADHHHHD! LOL Life is a circus, that's for sure! It's always, "Oh yeah, I just remembered that I have a project due tomorrow. . ." or "Where are the keys?" "I don't know, did you take out the trash?" "You told me to take out the trash?"

Hope to see some of you over there.
