REBOUND EFFECTS OF CONCERTA?
I am frusterated. I was called to a metting today at school regarding Ty's behaviors. Just, as I thought things were going well it turns out they are getting worse. It seems Ty might be having rebound effects to the concerta. He is gettign agitated and "itchy". He has become defiant. However, when he comes home he is Wonderful, when he is at the YMCA he is wonderful. So what is going on? Is it possible to have "rebound" effects and if so what dose that mean.
We switch over to Concerta the last week of august so it has only been 4 weeks. The doese has been changed for the third time already. Currently he is taking 36mg concerta and 1 10 mg of ritalin in the afternoon. Well now the doctor added 10 more mg of ritalin at noon. Help am I over medicating my child?
