Feeling down

My son has been on Focalin XR and Guanfacine ER for about four months. Things improved somewhat as the daily phone calls from the school stopped; however the incidents he has had seem to feel more dangerous. He tried to hurt another child at school on Friday and had to be picked up. His outbursts are just too much to handle. To top it off we Got the Genesight results on Saturday. I know they aren’t 100% but the first recommended medication for him was Adderral which he was horribly aggressive on. I’m just feeling kind of hopeless right now...

Same... I had to pick up my son again from school because the bullying is out of control. He is chronically bullied and he reacts in an explosive way toward these kids who are relentless. We just started him on vyvanse.

Praying this will help

Yes, 4 years ago we tried Concertta and we didn’t like the side affects.
