We just started fostering an 8 year old boy, approximately 65-70 lbs, from a terribly abusive home. He is on what seems to me to be too much medication. He is currently taking per day: 50 mg of Metadate, 2 mg guanfacine, 20 mg methylphenidate, .1 mg clonidine.
His moods are light switch quick to change; very scared (could be previous environment); hard time with speech; but a great hearted little boy.
Just concerned about getting a second opinion.
