My son has ADHD and has been taking Foclin XR all year. He is not aggressive just has a hard time fidgeting alot and focusing on tasks. The Dr will not let us keep him on the medication for the summer because he has not gained any weight...he is under weight currently. He has been off the meds for two days. He currently also has a bad cold. He has been sleeping for 12-16hours a day...I have to wake him up and he is very defiant right now and very buggy. I am not sure if he is having an after affect or just issues with the end of the year. He seems sad, not his happy bouncy self and I don't know what to chalk it up too. We are fighting none stop and its very frustrating for both of us. Any suggestions?
