We started our 7 year old on Ritalin LA 10 mg last November since the Tenex. appeared to stop working. We mainly started because after 1.5 years of therapy, we needed a little bit more support.
About 1 month later, the Ritalin LA didn't appear to work as the dosage of 10 mg was too low. We are now on Quilivant XR since late December along with 1.5 mg of the Tenex. All seemed to be going nicely until the last two weeks. My son started getting moodier and his impulsivity is uncontrollable again.
Its so upsetting reading the emails from his team at school. It makes me so sad that with his Speech, OT and Social therapy outside of school, as well as in-school support, we are backsliding once again. I am so worried about his relationships at school, I am making myself sick. He is doing well academically but I don't want him to feel depressed with not keeping or building new friendships.
How many times have you all changed medicines? I feel like my son is a guinea pig but I want to keep trying because I saw what it can do to help in the short term :)
