Parents of ADHD Children
Double dose of methylphenidate!
I’m freaking out a bit here and I hope I’m just over reacting. This morning I slept in a bit and when I woke up at approx 7:45 I asked my 9-year-old if his dad had given him his meds. He said no, so I gave him his dose (10mg.) My husband and I spoke an hour later and he informed me that he gave our son his dose at 6:30. That’s a total of 20mg within 2 hours! I haven’t seen any behavior changes and he tells me he feels fine. I’m really concerned as he just started back up earlier this week after taking the summer off. Should I call poison control? We just relocated so I haven’t found a new pediatrician yet.
We definitely will get one of those pill containers after this!
Any advice or experiences are greatly appreciated!
