    Let me know how it goes. Have you talked about trying other drugs? Summer would be a good time to do a drug change while she's not in school. You could also see what the internet says about drugs avalible for ADHD and what possible side effects each one may have.

    I know another kid that sounds like your daughter and they put him on a mild sleeping pill for the day time as well as a heavier one for night time and it seems to be helping according to his counslers. Not sure I like the idea of it though. Too much druging going on in his case.
    Adderol was the second drug we tried last summer.. it was worse than the ADHD.. she was getting depressed, moody and yes, constantly sleepy... only took it 2 and a half weeks and thought... this is crazy! We have to change this...We have been on Concerta ever since, but are on 36mg of it.

The teacher even measured and made them start over a couple of times!
    Now THAT is a punishment! The worst school punishment I had heard of before now was My mother had to write the Declaration of Independance every day after school for 6 weeks. (then my grandfather found out what was going on and put a stop to it.)
    Her crime, she laughed when a teacher slipped on a banana peel in the school auditorium. The teacher tried to make her tell who put the banana peel in the floor and she refused.

    Best advice I can give is to talk to your children every day! Communication is SO important! If your child has a problem or is acting out, giving you attitude, whatever...there is definately something going on in thier mind. Best to open up to them and listen first....hopefully with time they will learn to talk about things bothering them first before resorting to unacceptable behavior.

    I got an eye-opener the other week from my daughter. She was so upset because my bf would sometimes touch me and I would jokingly say...don't touch me! and she took it as I absolutely did NOT want him touching me. So when we talked about it she said...you and my dad always tell me to never let anyone touch me...and to tell them NO, etc....and NO means NO!....and he does that to you and I don't like it because you tell him no and he laughs or does it again. she said...

    So...in your child's mind...they may be seeing a situation totally different than what you are doing or saying!

    I only have one child...and she's not a teenager yet....LOL I'll keep some of these ideas in mind though LOL ;)

    Honestly you guys don't want alot of my advice on how to deal with kids, and how I raise my kid you can't raise a foster kid that way. As stated before, my kid is ADHD with a touch of oppositional defiance disorder and we've had to up her ADHD drugs twice now cause if she's not on em.. she does things like direct traffic and take rides from strangers or squeeze baby guinea pigs to death and butter entire loaves of bread. I'm told all I can be is patient, consistant and keep up that semblance of being the alpha female around here... I try the reasoning route, then the stern voice with consequence route , but always have to end up yelling loudly (not often angrily) to get this kids' attention and motivate her. Since she's my first and only, anyone got a clue as to WHY they make you get to that final straw point? I can remember doing it myself as a kid but lord knows I can't remember why I did it....
    Man I was getting really creative on getting her up for school, dressing herself and motivating her to go for awhile there, but it quit working. Like for a week there we were pretending she was on a sports challenge game show called, "the Backscratch Challenge". For completing a task in a certain amount of time, she would recieve so many minutes of me scratching her back (one of my last usable bribes). The show was complete with minute by minute accounts and background cheering from the "audience". Like I said, it worked for a week and then she was like... forget it! Back to threatening this or that to get her up... and my mom thought I was hard headed.
    Whatever you do DON'T let them put her on Adderall! I had a foster son come into my home on that stuff that had severe ADHD and at 14 and 5'1 he was only 79 pounds and constantly sleepy! That stuff is a weight loss and sleeping drug along with being used for ADHD. I had my dr. change him to Concerta and when I could get him to swollow it instead of spitting it at me it worked.
