ADHD in Girls
My six y/o daughter very emotional on new meds
My daughter will be six in just a few weeks and she has just recently been diagnosed with combined inattentive/hyperactive type ADHD. She was started on Vyvance 20 mg just after Christmas. She is showing signs of improvement in focus, staying on task and organization. The problem we are having is that she is very emotional now. She cries over every little thing and the teacher says she is not getting along with her classmates anymore. She is being very mean and bossy. She also gets very tired around lunch time. I sure this only serves to exacerbate the emotional issues. I am also ADHD and taking meds. I was also very emotional the first month that I took them and have heard the same story from friends who had the same experience.
Has anyone else had similar experiences with their children? How long did it last? Did they adjust? What remedies or techniques did you try to help aleviate the issues. I need some solid advise, please help.
