Thank you very much, I really appreciate hearing of others experiences and advice. We also tried Strattera back when my son was 6 years old for a few months and it was awful. He was always nauseous and really sad, emotional etc.

I will try Olly melatonin, I have some here for myself, is the one you use for kids? The one I have is for adults, but maybe giving him only 1 may help. We tried another kid brand in the past and didn’t notice it helped much, although that was a few years back.

I was under the impression that taking breaks from stimulant was ok and my Ped never mentioned weaning him slowly back on. It makes sense though.

I think we will try Concerta over the Christmas break from school. Hopefully it helps better than Adderall, if not, at least we tried and know.
