Parents of ADHD Children
My son is 9 y/o, he’s been diganosed with ADHD, and anxiety since he was 5 1/2. He’s taken Concerta daily every day since. Of course his dosage has changed over the years. In the last year we’ve added KapVay and trazadone to his regiment. He was also on periactin, but apparently when he takes the periactin and trazadone together it causes him nightmares, so we nixed the periactin to help him sleep at night. Now he’s constantly suffering with migraines. I feel were running in circles. His Dr doesn’t want to change the Concerta because it works so well for his adhd, but at the same time I believe its the Concerta causing the migraines. Has anyone else experienced this, and what are other treatment options I can approach is Dr with. He is open to hearing my concerns and making changes, but I think right now he sees the benifits out weigh the side effects, and honestly I’m tired of my son suffering with these headaches.
One exhausted momma!
