My 7 yr old son was recently diagnosed with ADHD combined type, dysgraphia, anxiety and depression. 13 Days ago we started him on 5mg of Focalin XR. We thought we saw an improvement but after a few days he was back to his old self. Fighting with his brother, constantly arguing with us, disorganized (can't find his coat, shoes, etc) I'm not sure if he needs to go up a dose or not. My doctor said if we see no improvement in 7-10 days to call and we did yesterday but haven't heard back from her. His teacher said she saw a little improvement. This is the first time he's been on a medication and we're not sure what kind of results we should be seeing.
