My 10 yr old son was recently diagnosed with ADHD. At first I was apprehensive about starting meds but we decided to give it a try 2 weeks ago. He was on metadate CD 10 mg for one week and we did not see much change. Recently his Pedi changed it to 20 mg and his teachers confirm that he seems a lot more focused and confident in school ! Yahoo ! But, we are seeing an increase in sensitivity, irritability and emotions...he's always been sensitive and a little short fused but I feel like it has gotten a little worse recently...has anyone experienced these emotional ups and downs from their child on metadate ? On the bright side, he is eating well, sleeping well (hard to get up but thats nothing new) and is very social and happy overall.
