My son, Caelyn, had a Dr. appointment yesterday and the Dr. gave us a new RX for a higher dose med. He has been on meds for three months trying to get the dose right. He was getting really bad at school, grades were slipping and he was close to being kicked off the bus. So I told the Dr. he needed to get on some kind of med. Well, now that school is coming to an end he tells us to give him all of the new RX and call to make another appointment right before school and to leave him unmedicated for the summer. It doesn't make sense to me, he is almost imposible to handle without meds, and he gets hurt a lot more. Has anybody else had their Dr. stop meds over the summer., I am taking him to a different doctor anyway, but I don't want him to go unmedicated. He told me that he wants to continue to take them over the summer he tells me"Mom, I don't want to be wild all summer". He's 6 years old and this is his thought.
