my son is 6. he takes 30mg metadate in the morning-lasts 8 hours. Then takes 15mg Ritalin-lasts 4 hours. after it wears off he is very emotional, defiant, and irritable. bedtime is awful. any advice on maybe a med that will keep him calmer 24 hours a day, and make waking and bedtime more manageable?


My son too. He is 9. We don’t give the extra dosage but we still have the same results. No advice just empathy.
