Our 8 year old son has been on 18mg Concerta for 9 months. Overall, the results have been good - until now! He's back in school and has been in trouble almost everyday. His work is sloppy and his teacher says his behavior is out of control. He has forgotten to write down his homework assignments and left his books almost every day. Our Dr. has suggested giving him 5mg of Ritalin at lunch to "boost" the concerta. Has any one tried this? Have you had success?

I'm thinking he will most likely need to move to a 27mg Concerta. I am not as crazy about that because of the possible side effects. We've finally gotten past the side effects with the 18mg (sleeplessness and loss of appetite).
