my 7 year old has been diagnosed with ADHD (combined type) since the age of 4. We have tried several Meds including Folcalyn, Concerta to name a few, and they work for a little bit but then is like her body takes over and meds stop working. She is 7 and weights about 55 pound, tall for her age , but very thin, currently taking 54 mg concerta in the morning and 18 mg concerta at noon along with 1 mg tab of clonodine in the morning. It is a very high dose and im just worried about her health and heart. I don't know if it has anything to do with the meds, but has been recently bleeding from her nose (not severely) but concerns me.
