So we went to the doctor today to discuss how Elijah is doing on his new medication. I told her how things were going. He seems calmer and to respond better with discipline. He seems to have less aggression. Even she noted his change since she last saw him. We are going to up the dosage by 1 mg, so he will now have 3 mg instead of two. I will wait until Thursday to start him on the new dosage though, because tomorrow is state testing. Upping the dosage could make him sleepy and that wouldn't be good on a day he has to take an important test....although I don't like the testing, he still has to take it.
I think upping the medication will be a good thing. I'll let you all know how it goes.
