It's been a few days since I posted (ah shift work...) but I wanted to post and let you know what the "plan" is for my son.
I spoke with our pediatrician regarding the increased anger/frustration since our med change, and we are going to try a reduction from 15mg of the Adderal to 10mg. I also spoke to the school and they are going to monitor for any changes that they see over the next couple of weeks.
I have noticed a small decease in Matt's outbursts but wonder if part of that may be that we are now back into the school routine after the holiday's. Routine is so important to him, and even a seemingly pleasant disruption can cause his anxiety level to climb!
I'd also like to share an interesting note just in case any of you have had a similar experience.... we noticed that Matt has been rubbing his eyes to the point where he has them rubbed raw in the corners! We had his eyes tested, looked at possible allergies etc and have decided that this is indeed another tic he is presenting. Many of his tics are associated with upper body movements.
Thanks again for the input and support I am finding here!
