None, but we have all these issues.

We don't really have any of those issues, except occasionally with sleep.

Sleep and attention aren't really issues,,, behavior,,, well... LOL, Sam has high anxiety and is currently on a low dosage of Prozac. We have just increased it in the hopes it becomes more managable in difficult situations... Sam is great in "daily" stuff... But when faced with tough stuff (visiting school, talking with strangers... He doesn't do too well)

My youngest is on Trazadone, Clonidine and Clonazipam for sleep, oldest son is on Concerta, Risperdal for behavior and his ADHD and on Mirtazipine and Clonidine for sleep.

We use vivance, Clonidine and melatonin for sleep. the melatonin works great for sleep as long as I remember to not give it to him every few days. The vivance made big changes at first but he seems to be struggling again.

My kids take methylin ER. But we're going to have to try to find another med because the med's prices have gone up. One of my kids was $169!

Does insurance not cover the cost? Can you not get state health insurance on top of the private? Here you can get the state care if you prove a special need for it. Some have to pay a monthly cost for it but it's is around $20-$40 a month. A lot less then the cost of meds and it covers copays for all Drs visits.

Yeah that is with insurance :( hmm I am not sure if we can do that. I tried to get CHIPS but we didn't qualify (we are in TX). I will have to look into it. It would be so helpful if we could!
