We just tried Focalin XR 5mg on our 7 year old this past week and it’s helped with the impulse behavior but it seems to make him more irritable/anxious and more emotional. This also happened with the Adderall 5mg too. We also tried Guanfacine 5mg that made no difference at all. He’s doing fine academically but we just can’t seem to get him to focus and not interrupt the class, or do what he’s told to do the
first time without whining about it. Should I be looking more into an IEP and try yet another medication? I hate bouncing around medications but I don’t know what else to do!
