I joined this group just so I could ask this same question. My son did great the first couple of days on Concerta 18mg. The “goodness” wore off after about a week. Dosage was upped to 27 mg. Same thing happened. Dose was upped to 36 mg. Again, he had several good days and then went back to his old ways. Intuniv was added a couple of weeks ago. I thought this was our ticket. Nope, only good for about 4-5 days.

He also receives behavioral therapy and I get parenting “therapy” from a psychologist. I’m at a loss. He is so very moody, defiant and difficult.
