Parents of ADHD Children
My 10 year old ADHD daughter has recently developed what seems to be depression/anxiety. We recently changed her meds in June and went from 15 mg Focalin and 2 mg Intuniv to just 2 mg of intuniv. At first I saw a huge difference in her personality. She was no longer a zombie from the Focalin and seemed to be adjusting well to the change. However, in the beginning of July sent her to a sleep-away camp for a week. Ever since she got back she has been clingy and depressed and hasn’t slept well at night. The first few days back were terrible. She had horrible separation anxiety and wouldn’t even go to her normal day camp. Also, I’m a single mom working full time, so it’s really not an option to stay at home with her. Anyway, has anyone had something similar happen? Any helpful suggestions welcomed!
