See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My son is 4 yrs old.
Okay, with Ritalin and Focalin, his attention was much better but he became very aggressive and his behavior at school worsened. And he had major social anxioty, being worried and scarred to be around other children.
We've just tried Adderall and his behavior at school was so much better! Attention better! Yay! I think we've found it BUT according to his teacher:
"However, he was very withdrawn and uncommunicative for much of the day. During circle time when I called his name for his turn at the Smart Board, he did not respond. I had to call his name 4 times and come over to him until he recognized I was speaking to him. Typically, this is something he looks forward to and eagerly awaits his turn. I have never had to repeat calling his name at this time, so this was a marked difference. He also spent a good part of the day reciting (what I think is) scripts from tv shows."
Anybody have any experience with increased repetitive behaviors from stimulants?
