We started Ritalin 4 days ago (morning only) and the teacher has noticed lots of positive changes. He's concentrating, he's keeping his hands too himself at carpet time, his focused, happier and less hands-on and impulsive. He still has social skills issues, but the speech and language therapist is going to work with him.
My main question is, my paediatrician wanted him to start the 2nd Midday Ritalin after 7-10 days, however the teacher did say that although his a little bit hyperactive in the afternoons, it's not as bad as before Ritalin and his behaviour seems to be much more manageable. For now.
So I'm wondering if it's ok to only give the morning Ritalin? Maybe it's helping him start the day focused and more confident, therefore he finds the day less stressful?
