I am infuriated (so mad I dont even care if I spelled that right)!! SS7 got diagnosed with "adhd" in may (may 6th 2012 to be exact) and it is now August 10 2012 and this child has been on 5 medications!!!!! Now let me say to me that sounds like a bit much since he didn't start taking the meds until he got out of school. So he started his meds on may 28Th (that Monday after getting out of school on the 24th). So that's what like 8 weeks and meds have changed 5 times? He was started on strattera the dose was the lowest does possible. On it for about a week BM changed it cause "it wasn't working". needless to say this kept going all the time. She changed every dose within a 2 2.5 week period to where SS was taking 24(or 25 what ever the dosse is)mg a day the last time we had him (exactly 2 weeks ago and had just started that dose the weekend before so 3 weeks total on that dose). Now we get him and he has a completely different medication (kapvay) .1mg at night before bed that he has been on for a week. DH has told BM every time she has asked how a medication dose is working "he is doing ok but you have to give the medication a little longer to work I think." (He says that cause she always says "we will just up his meds" when we see her and she WORKS for SS's doctor who gives her samples since she says "I can't afford the medication" (yes she has insurance but she refuses to go to the pharmacy at the hospital like her insurance requires supposedly) and we have read up on strattera and everything says it takes 4-6 weeks to work AFTER REACHING TARGET DOSE.) Is this too may meds in such a short period? What would you suggest we do since telling BM what we think she just ups his medication and we have tried contacting the doctor but apparently he isn't getting the messages or she is trying to pull rant since she has custody and holds the insurance poloicy.
