We just wanted to share our experiences with you. Our adopted son, who is eight: has FAS; as well as sensory processing disorder; ADHD, relative micro cephaly ; underweight ; under the dietician ; and the bladder and continence services.
For his ADHD he takes Medkinet XL (brand name) , our Peaditrican recently changed his medication to equasam (brand name). We noticed a huge difference in his behaviour. Mornings have always been challenging , but when he changed his medication he became more violent : attitude that was arrogrant; and lying about anything (which was more than normal).
Has any other parents experienced morning problems? Has any other parents , who have children on medication noticed any other differences?
Mornings are a nightmare! And when he is in his mood we more often than not have to take him in the car to school.....
