I need advice about medication to help my son stay focus to complete homework. My son will be starting high school next week, and I think it may be time to add a medication for homework. My son struggled last year with completing homework. He currently takes Vyvanse 40 mg before school, but it's worn off by the time it's time to do homework. I'm a nurse, and I've seen a lot of kids on high doses of medications, which has made me leary with increasing the Vyvanse and adding another medication. I'm fear if I add more medication, it will increase his tolerance for addictive medications. However, if I don't, he will struggle with completing assignments and understanding all the new information he will learning in highschool. Also, I'm worried because my son made the football team and he needs to stay focus, so he does get hurt while playing. He's a slim guy already, and the Vyvanse doesn't help with this appetite. Although I'm a nurse, I must admit I feel like the worst mom in the world asking for suggestions for more medications for my son. Any suggestions you have would be much appreciated...Nervous mom of a new high schooler, who has ADHD!
