My Star Kyle. (Life with ADHD) Part Nine

So we had the pescription and off we trotted to the local chemist to collect the tablets. We were both quite excited, as the doc had told us how it worked and we wanted to see if he was right.

He had said there were 2 layers in a Concerta tablet, one was a quick release ritalin coating that would get to work almost immediately, and the other was a slow release inner that would work throughout the day.

That meant 1 tablet per day, at least that's what he wanted us to start on, and said we could up it to 2 if it didn't seem to be working too well.

We got the tablets and Kyle couldn't wait to try it out. It was still early morning, so he got the tablet and....

Nope, it wasn't a miracle cure. He calmed down quite quickly, but not lots. Through the day he seemed a tiny tiny tiny bit calmer than he was without tablets, but it was barely noticeable.

We stuck with it, one tablet per day at 8am for the next couple of weeks. It still didn't seem to be kicking in much, so we decided that when he came back from his nans in France (he was going for 3 weeks), we'd up the dosage to 2 tablets per day instead.

All of the kids went to their nans, and although it was bliss to start with, I started getting bored after the first week and couldn't wait for them to come home. I was also really worried about how Kyle would cope with being away from home for so long when he'd just started on the concerta...

so how did he do? did he manage okay on the concerta? did his nan notice a difference?
