I am no novice to Adhd. My oldest (10 is ASD/Adhd?Bipolar/Anxiety. However my 2nd ds (6-Aspergers/ADD) is why I'm here.
He is night and day from his brother. While my 10 year old is heavy on the H, my year old is more inattentive, airy fairy. It's finally affecting school enough that when I raised meds at his IEP meeting last week no one poo pooed and talked my down, lol.
We tried vyvanse last summer but even the lowest dose zonked him out so much he slept all day. His brother had been on ritilin (caused a fog and absent seizures), Adderall, (ok for a while but then caused irritability) and is now doing great on focalin XR.
We see the pdoc in 2 weeks and I want to have a better idea of what can be offered. Bear in mind he is almost 7, 43 lbs soaking wet, (eats all the time though).
