We've reduced the medication by 1 ml and thus far, we're not quite sure what we're seeing.
He's having trouble focusing, both at school and at home. This could be residual from the loose tooth/recovery from illness. It could be due to the distraction in change in routine. Or it could be the result of lowering the dosage.
When we first put him on, we noticed an effect after raising the dose to 2 mls. So I wouldn't expect to see a significant change until we dropped below that threshold.
We're holding steady for now and won't make any further changes until we have a better idea of what we're dealing with. If he continues to have trouble after the holidays, we will have to accept that the medication is necessary and raise his dose back to the standard levels. It would probably be mid-January before we could be sure the problem was the medication and not the environment.
