My 10 yr. old son and 6 yr. old daughter began the med. process for their ADHD in May & June. In reguards to their accademic abilities it has been absolutley heaven sent for our family. Their abilities to focus and concentrate and apply what they have learned have sky rocketed and so has their confidence. But at their last doctor's visit I was warned that if their weight doesn't atleast stabalize they may not be able to continue with their meds. They have always been good sized kids ie... my daughter was always about the 98% for her height and about 80% for her weight... But ever since May & June they have both lost atleast a pound by every doctor's visit making both of them atleast 15 pounds less than what they should weigh now! That's a lot for children! I told the doctor that the meds. have been heaven sent and I wouldn't want them to have to stop but getting them to eat while on the meds. is very difficult. She told me to find what they like to eat no matter what it is and allow them to eat when ever they want. They also metabolize their long acting med. quickly so they have difficulty focusing for homework time so she gave me a short acting med. to give them right after school but warned that getting them to eat will become that much harder... Any advice???
