Hi everyone,had a rough morning getting my teen to go to school.He used to take Adderal and had a break during summer.When I tried to get him back on them,Medicaid would not cover it, so we had to put him on Stratera.First 2 days he took 25 mg.then it went to 80.Now, when it's time for school, we get into a fight.He's too tired.I guess he's not used to being tired and he don't know how to handle it.Any suggestions, because I have very high blood pressure and it went through the roof this morning.He was screaming so loud this morning I'm sure he woke the nieghbors up and God only knows what they were thinking.He is not my biological child,he is my nephew,that I have custody of.I'm also worried that the nieghbors might call DCF because of the screaming and they'll take him out of my house.(nosy nieghbors).I'm so scared he will drop out of school also and without a good education ,how is this kid going to servive in this world.Any advice? Your the only people I can turn to because you know where I'm coming from. Thanks.
