Two More Posts on ADHD meds

September 16, 2011

While I’ve been editing the copyedits to my manuscript this week, Dorothy and Julie have both made very helpful posts in the ADHD Meds conversation about whether/when to medicate the behavioral and mental health diagnoses that often come along with FASD.  If you haven’t already seen them, consider Dorothy’s post, When Is it Time… and Julie’s post, the Question of Meds as you think and pray.

Our experiment with using two different meds to cover Hope’s daytime behaviors while helping her get the sleep she needs is showing some promise. Not sure yet about the combination. But I think this may be the right track for her for now. Even more exciting, we, too, were able to get an appointment with a new psychiatrist. She gets glowing reviews on understanding kids with FASD and I’m looking forward to meeting her in a few weeks!
