My son just turned 7 and we are having a hard time finding the right meds for him. He is currently on Concerta. This has helped with his focus in school but he is so emotional toward the end of the afternoon. Today after the bus dropped him off, he refused to come in the house and sat in a snow bank at the end of the driveway because he wanted to play with his friend. I told him his friend wasn't home, but he just got teary and started to cry, and still refused to come in. He had been on ritalin and adderall before this, and they made him a ZOMBIE - AND gave him terrible stomachaches too. He would just get so sad and say he was stupid and it just breaks my heart. Is this how he is "coming down" from the drug? He has always been a good sleeper so I don't want to start having issues with that. Is he overdosed? He's only 50# and is on 18 mg. Concerta. Do these side effects start to level off? Has anyone been through this? Please help. jen
