My son 14, Adhd , currently takes Vyvanse 20mg/ Guanfacine 2mg combo . We started in the mid December. It looked like finally we found the right medication, but we didn’t. He became upset, angry, mean and disrespectful. We got to the point that I couldn’t catch 2 min of normal conversation with him. He would make faces, noises, give me inappropriate feedback etc. Not my child!
So I got scared , and did not give him the meds today . He got the worst day ever. Got in fight with a another student ( he is not physical and never before got in trouble for that) , was called in the office several times !
We have an appointment tomorrow, but slowly I am loosing faith that we will find the right medication
He tried Metadate, Concerta, Adderal, Methylphenidate, Guanfacine and Vyvance. All with initial ok, and then fiasco.
This time is the worst. I am fighting inside . I cry. I want to help him, but it is not working. I am exposing him for a failure every time he goes to school on new meds because of the unknown side effects. I feel hopeless and lost
