*update* Moms with kids on adhd meds help

Update: his doctor actually stayed late to see him this evening and they upped his meds. He will get a regular 5mg tablet at school at noon. Thanks for the advice ladies.




My son is on aderall xr 5mg once a day well it wears off at about 1230-1. He then becomes out of control. He slings himself he bucks and bows his body. Runs around screaming. His teachers sent home a note from school asking me to get him into the doctor asap and don't send him back until he's.under control.

I'm at a loss here. What more can they give him? He's already been on ritilan and tenex and it was just to much for him.

Anyone know of anything I can do or say. I'm at my wits end.

The school should not be sending you notes demanding you medicate your son. If his behavior is that poor they need to set up a behavioral plan in a meeting that includes you.

He has an iep with a behavioral plan. He's medicated already. I plan on speaking to the principal in the morning.

Quoting 1likeme:
