he was a preemie weighing 3 1/2 lbs at birth and has a dairy allergy as well as asthma... his weight is only 25.6 lbs. He has been on Adderall as well as Ritalin (now discontinued) and suffered some behavior changes and now is being given clonodine... I worry about how safe this is for such a small child
If you go into my previous questions, you can read a lot about this. I had the same question about my son who is six. Read my posts & answers I think they will be helpful. I will tell you that since I wrote those I did decide to put him on the clonidine for sleep. It has been helpful, and no side effects. He wakes up fine in the morning. I was very unsure but I have a lot of faith in my pediatrician. I put my trust in him and was glad I did.

My autistic/ADHD son was put in Adderall aged 7 as he went from Ritalin all the way up to Risperdal?
