Right now my 5 year old is on the Daytrana patch. I am not sure if the dosage is right for her. She seems to act out a lot and starts crying for now reason. It is hard to make her calm down when she gets like that. She was first diagnosed with anxiety and when that was under control we found the ADHD. I thought long and hard before putting her on any medication. I spent hours researching the list the psychiatrist gave me. I also talked it over with her psychologist to see what her opinion was. We tried the play therapy for almost a year before I finally decided to medicate her. Since school was about to begin in less than 2 months I wanted her to get use to the medication. She still sees her psychologist every week and the psychiatrist every 4 months. Things just are not going very well and I think maybe it is time to up the meds. I am so confused and I know ultimately it is my decision, but I could use a bit of advise.
