My 11 year old has difficulty after school when his concerta wears off. I have been giving him a top up of Ritalin but of course it wears off after three hours and is not as good as the concerta even if if us the same base drug ingredient. We give him a clonidine before bed and it works well fir him. I feel like my kid is the only one who struggles with this. It is really difficult as he is horrible towards me and his brothers. It is rebound but I just don't know how to make it better. I have been trying to find a solution for over three years. I am so exhausted by it.
