Trying medication - Any advice?
After struggling for two years to help our (now 11 year old) son after the ADHD diagnosis, we’re finally ready to try medication.
Yesterday was his first dose of biphentin. We’re going with 10mg this week, 15mg next, etc until we reach 30mg or a point we want to stop.
We can reach his psychiatrist by voicemail anytime, but does anyone have any great advice for us?
I’m worried his tics could get worse. I’m a little worried about the loss is appetite, but less so. Our Dr assures us that if this isn’t the right one, the next one could be (75% you hit the right one right away, 90% on the second one).
