My DD (6) was diagnosed with ADHD a year ago. I chose not to medicate her for it at the time but after 2 bad report cards and her teacher coming to me about how DD was having a tough time focusing, staying on task and sitting still in class, I changed my mind.
The Dr. started her out on 18mg of Concerta and she really did well on it. Her teacher was really impressed with her improvements and all was well for awhile. After about 3 months it seemed the medication wasn't working so the Dr. decided to up her dose to 27mg. Now about 4 months later it seems that it's not working as well again. She has an appointment next week and I'm thinking they might up her medication again.
I was wondering about other kids with ADHD that are medicated, has your child had to have their medication changed like this? Has it seemed to not work after awhile? Are they on Concerta or something different? I'm just wondering if this is normal.
