Since starting Camdyn on Focalin XR, we've seen a enormous change in her behavior. She spends hours drawing, cutting, coloring. The odd thing is that most of what she'd draw would be the same thing over and over and over again. She would sit there listless, with a blank stare, and just sort of methodically draw picture after picture.
It was hard to watch her like that. Even Riley said she wanted the old Camdyn back. We stopped giving her that dosage and called her pediatrician, who then prescribed her a lower dosage. So far, it seems to take the edge off the hyperactivity.

Cute garland she made for the end of her bed.
So, we're trying to fine tune the dosage amount...find that balance. Camdyn has her team: family, her pediatrician, and her aunt (another pediatrician) supporting her.
It will all work out.
