Hi everyone. I don't know if anyone else has had anything like this happen, but I thought I'd ask. My 7 year old son is on Concerta and Strattera for ADHD, it has been okay for the most part. The last several weeks I have noticed a new behavior and am not sure what to think. My son started repeatedly twirling his hair, I noticed more when he was anxious or wasn't doing something with his hands. His hair was getting pretty long so we got it cut, and I figured that would get him to stop. Since that time I have noticed him repeatedly stroking his hair on top of his head, several times, when he is anxious or just sitting around, his teacher has noticed it as well. He doesn't really act like he realizes he is doing it. But it is very strange, it isn't like he is trying to fix his hair or anything, he does this all the time. Any thoughts?
