Christopher…. Change of Meds…Again

We’ve had some challenges with my little Christopher the last few weeks.  Even on his Ritalin he was going non stop.  His night time medications weren’t working either; he was up till 9, 10, and sometimes 11; waking every hour or so and then up at 4 or 5 a.m. every morning, just to start the day all over non stop. 

The thoughts were that his lack of sleep would solve the problem with his Ritalin not working, so his night time medicine was changed.  While it is great at putting him to sleep, within an hour of taking the dose, it was not keeping him asleep.  Every few hours he was up and rising extremely early.  Still, the days were long and crazy.  With some adjustments to the Ritalin, and still not seeing any progress, the decision was to change his medicine from Ritalin to Concerta. 

The doctor said it will take a few weeks for the  medicine to get in his system…. until then, we will do the best we can and try staying one step ahead of him so he doesn’t hurt himself, or anyone else.

I need more coffee, so must run.

My Mammow has been in the hospital for over a week.  She is 83 years old.  Please be praying for her.

Blessings on you.
