The appointment

Today’s meeting for Anna this afternoon was good. The doctor talked to her directly, what she is hoping to get from medication and her answer was – “to be able to pay more attention, to be more focussed”. So, we are trying Daytran, for a month to see how she does on it. What I like about the patch is that it can be taken off earlier. When a pill is taken, it lasts for a longer time, but the patch can be removed. We will be trying it out while we are in Germany and will have more of an idea if it is working, we have to up the dose or have to try something different. Anna actually asked tonight when she will be able to use it. I think she is ready to show when she can actually do. She can do so much in the classroom, but it is reall tough during tests. As written  before, I think many of her issues have to do with being able to focus and pay attention. It is certainly NOT a smart pill!

Today, I have been trying to understand our health insurance plan. Unfortunately, even the insurance cannot tell me how something will be covered – copay or deductible, or both. Well, I am not going to leave it up to chance and will keep bugging them. This is the fun part of staying at home, right? With everything else I am doing – work, house, kids, packing for vacation – it is NOT recommendable.

Good night, sleep tight …

My daughter who is 11 also wears the Daytrana patch. It makes all the difference in the world.

We’ve now switched to Focalin XR, because her poor skin got irritated everywhere. She is doing extremely well on it, just not eating much 😦
Good thing she loves my food!
