ADD: The Patch

13 03 2008

J is doing pretty well with the Daytrana patch. He’s been on it for a week now and I’m seeing some positive changes in him. It hasn’t been bump-free though…

Two days were big cry– I want to go home– days at school and his poor bottom is checkered with little red squares… I’ve finally figured out how to help him with the skin irritation– Band-aid Hurt Free Antiseptic Wash helps get it off and a little first aid cream helps with the soreness.

The crying wasn’t such an easy fix– we couldn’t figure out what the problem was. He told me that he wanted to go home and Mrs. K wouldn’t let him so he was sad. His teacher, who should be sainted; “St. Mrs. K” said that she couldn’t find anything that was different or that could have triggered it.  One of the possible side effects are mood swings so maybe that’s what it was.

He’s had two good days in a row… so, here’s to it being taken care of and smooth sailing from here on.

I’m glad it is going well so far. Always take awhile to settle out, I hear. Hope it continues to go well!
