Re: Ok to take off meds??
Thanks for the replies - He is on Concerta. I know my doctor questioned if I did give it to him on the weekends, so I took it as it was ok---she suggested it because of self esteem reasons. He was diagnosed with ADHHHD heavy on the H, so my referring to him being calm was because he wasn't as hyper as he was when orignally diagnosed--could it be possibably due to growing up?? When he was put on meds, it definetely made a difference, he wasn't in trouble constantly in school and his grades did improve, we were happy with the decision we made. But Oh man I would give anything for him not to have to be on meds, of course I don't want him in trouble and have a difficult time focusing! and concentrating on what he is suppose to be doing in school.. Like I said we had previously tried diet changes, and behavorial techniques back then nothing seemed to help or basically make a bit of difference. I don't want hiim struggling!!! I did try to contact his doctor but she is on vacation and then we are on vacation for the remanding part of the week, so I was curious of others input in the mean time. Thanks!!!
