I'm at a point of taking my son out of school and home schooling him! He was just diagnosed with ADHD the first week of January. This whole school year I have dealt with sad faces sent home on his work and bad reports. So, he started taking his medication last week (concerta) and I don't know if it's because his body is getting used to it or not, but he's been awful this week!!! I've had it with the school, the teacher, and the principle. It's seems like no one knows how to handle him. In a world where ADHD is so wide spread, why can't his school work with me? I"ve put in a call to the superintendent and hopefully that will work. I told the principle today that I guess maybe the best way to go about this is to just keep him home until his medication seems to be working.
Why doesn't his school understand? He's an amazing child with a heart of gold, it's just that nobody understands him! I"m so frustrated!!! Grh...
Also, does anyone out have their 5 y/o on Concerta? How can I tell if this medication is working or making it worse? How long do I wait?
