We finally have decided to try meds. We have ruled out all other causes for our sons behavior issues and went to an ADHD specialist that came highly recommended by a few friends. He was very helpful gave us lot of tips on how to handle some of DS issues. He started him on Vyvance 20mg. Today was his first day! He had a great day at school and right now he is playing with his brother and sister with out any outbursts or fighting....I"M AMAZED!!!! He is still high energy, he came home and took the dog for her after school run with him. He just seems to have more control over himself!!
He did have a bad stomach ache today at lunch time. He is a skinny kids so, I'm hoping this won't last long. Are there any kinds of breakfast shakes or something I should try to give him at breakfast to boost his calorie intake. He requested his favorite for supper he should make up for not eating lunch.
We call the Dr. on Monday to report how he is doing and then we go back to see him in 2 weeks to weigh him and talk in person about DS progress.
