Now, with the Ritalin LA we get that moment of chattyness in the morning maybe 20mins after taking it (although we didn't get it today so maybe its not every day) and then she is calmer and happier and more able to concentrate.
Now, she will come out of school with a smile on her face. No more complaints from her about not being able to think properly etc. One day she came out smiling and told me they learnt all about fractions that day and she was SO excited to tell me that she could understand the teacher. That's when it really hit home to me that basically without the ritalin she is not understanding much or remembering etc.I feel so guilty for not realising there was a problem for so long.
