Question Has any one taken phenobarb and it made you hyper

Son is on phenobarb and it makes him very hyperactive.He has ADHA and takes ritalin but the ritalin isn't helping much because of the phenobarb. We may be switching to klonapin.Has any one had any troubles like this?

Hi wendy

Welcome to healthboards hon,

I am taking phoenabarb but to be honest it sorta slows me down LOL am wondering if its the two together...? I don't know. You should mention it to your doctor though. Seems counter productive though Also try ADD you might find more answers hon.
