My son who has ADHD is taking clonidine er 1/2 tab in the am then again at 4pm, 0.1mg... around 1pm it wears off and he is hyper and defiant. Not sure what to do for that window of time, as school will be starting! Stimulants have been too rough on him, although I do have liquid quillivant for a last result. I was wondering if anybody has bumped clonidine up to an earlier time frame. I was thinking his afternoon dose to 1 pm but am fearful for what 4pm and evening will look like being his sister has softball. Any input would be appreciated!

Parent him firmly and consistently and w/ a lot of patience....

Or talk to his psychologist about the best approach.
