Gs 5 started medication Ritalin 5 2x per day last week. Seemed to be working okay, even had an outstanding day in school yesterday and en excellent grocery shopping trip Sunday. Well between last night and today he has been actually worse than ever before. I basically had to drag him through the parking lot last night at the store to get to the car over a breakdown over buying potato chips. today he basically lost it when his mom left for work and screamed and kicked and ranted and cried threw things and actually broke a large vase that we have had longer than we have had him. still lots of random nos and screaming and crying. were we imagining that the medicine was helping home some or could it be just backfiring now?
we return to his prescribing doctor right after Thanksgiving.
