Post Concerta and Zoloft working together?

My son is 8 yrs. old he is currently on 18mg of Concerta and 50mg of Zoloft. He was taking 36 mg of Concerta but developed stomach aches so I backed him back down to 18mg. On our last Dr. visit he was put on Zantac for his stomach and his Dr. told me to up him back up to the 36mg dosage after my next refill which isn't for another week. Jacob has been on Concerta for almost 3 months now and because of his rapid weight loss and his stomach problems has never made it passed 36mg. His behavior is awful at this point and he needs a higher dosage of some kind of medication but which one? We have tried Ritalin and Adderall XR and neither one of them seemed to help him. I have read up on Strattera and I just do not like what I have read up to now. We are scheduled to see a specialist next month and I plan on discussing Strattera with him but until then I would like for Jacob to be able to finish out this school year on a high note. Anyway so I guess my question is has anyone tried the 36mg and Zoloft combonation and did it seem to help? Jacob is classified as Adhd w/ LD and he also has OCD. If anyone has tried this combo let me know how it went or how it is going? Thanks

my daughter has the same problems as you son does but she is on medadate and 50mg of zoloft and it has been working. so maybe you could try to see if the doctor would write out a prescri for the medadate cd it comes in 10mg or 20 my daughter is on the 20mg

hope this helps
