My son has been on Vyvanse for about 8 months - best therapuetic dose has been 30 mg. He's 9 years old. New psychiatrist wants to try him on Concerta 36 mg. My son has been doing great in school, just some moments of daydreaming but no impulsivity, doing great socially, and doing well on tests, etc. At home, though, he's had a lot of anger when meds wear off or haven't kicked in and trouble sleeping...I think this is why he wants us to try Concerta. My son just took his first dose. Luckily, he has today off of school...so if disastrous at least he's just here at home.
Anyone have any feedback on this? I know every child is different, but...you know sometimes feedback is comforting. (((((HUGS))))) to my fellow adhd kiddo mommas out there :)
