and his fathers nephew had it as well,
poor Dillon was so upset!
He felt like this made him even more different than the seizures had already made him feel. I always tell him that it doesn't make him any different then anyone else. He has been prescribed Concerta in the morning and Strattera before bed. He has always hated having to be on medication every day.
Recently, Dillon has been taken off of his seizure medication, therefore, his Concerta didn't seem to be working as well. Dill was always frustrated with school, he wasn't doing too well either. He would tell me that no matter how hard he tried it was difficult to pay attention. Sometimes he couldn't even get through a test!
I talked to the doctor and they increased his dose. Dill has since said that he is glad we made the increase. He noticed the difference it has made!! He said it makes it much easier for him to do what he wants. Like paying attention in class, remembering to bring his homework home and turn it back in. His teachers and I email daily and also have meetings. They have been a great support system, and have told me that they have seen a huge difference in Dillon's attitude and work ethic! I couldn't be more happy or proud of Dillon! Not only is he doing better but, he has noticed himself the advantages his medications have for him.
I have also put some links at the top of the page for parents with children that have ADD/ADHD. Please take a minute to check them out! They may be just what you need! Have a wonderful day filled with blessings!
