LLinder, my son did not fare well on Concerta. He too became very emotional and then I discovered he was not sleeping at all which put him in a very bad mood. He then switched to Adderall which he did well on but once again we were moving his mg's up too often. Now he is on 25 mg of Strattera and 15 mg of Adderall. This has been a heaven sent combination for him. It was like they both cancelled out any side effects of the other. He is happy, eating so much better, sleeps great, behaving at home like an angel, getting really good grades. Still in a little trouble at school but what can you expect in a class with 13 eight year old boys!

We have only been using this combination for about a month so I don't know what the future holds, but so far so good. There is another mom on this board whose son takes Concerta and Strattera with excellent results too. You might want to talk to your doctor.

Free Spirit-you always give great advice but remember that some children do better on meds than with alternative treatments. Each person is different. I wish you would refrain from throwing out that "cocaine" reference all the time. Parents have to follow their own intuition and do what they feel is best for their child. Just like I am sure yours tried to do for you. :)
