My 5 year old boy was diagnosed w ADHD. It was mostly the hyper and then the focusing started in. He drove us nuts w his impulsiveness. Nothing was ever fun. We started him on methyl liquid, methylphenadate suspended, vyvanse and now guanfacine (all in one month). The stimulants turned him into a raging crazy almost disturbing human being. Immediately stopped meds and 5 days later (dr assures me all meds are out of his system and he should be at baseline) well yesterday he threatened to kill his teachers kids and was crazy all day. HOW???? HE WAS NEVER EVER LIKE THIS BEFORE MEDICATIONS!!! Now the Dr says there could be something else going on and throws out Functional Behavior Analysis. This was not the case before meds, can medication reroute his brain? Im confused and just want my "normal" hyper baby back . Anyone w similar experience? Are there underlying issues?
Guanfacine 1mg was started last night. He woke up like he was drunk this morning.
