Thank you all for the lovely messages. It has all been helpful and I am sure it is also helping others who may be reading these post. I am also trying to figure out how to put an update in the original post. There is no edit button next to it. If you scroll up you will find an update within this post, but here’s another quick one. My daughter is now 12 days on Ritalin (the generic brand). She takes 5mg, two to three times a day depending on how much homework she has. She did not take any this weekend so technically she has taken it for 9 days. It has been a miracle. She has experienced success getting through her school work. We see her psychiatrist for her first follow up on Saturday.
Thank you again for all of your kind and helpful input.
