I'm quite annoyed with my doctor right now.

My son has ADHD, Aspergers and LDs and the he's been on 50 mg of Biphentin for some time now.

The DR believes he's a fast metabolizer of the meds and believes that we need to try the following:

2 weeks at Breakfast and 1 PM (50 mg) - double the dose
2 weeks later the same meds PLUS add Strattera to the mix till he's eventually increased to 60 mg

So eventually, he's been on 2 pills in the morning (Biphentin/Strattera) and then 1 Biphentin in the PM.

I'm so frustrated and my husband is furious...if this doesn't work we are out of pocket hundreds and we DON'T have any medical insurance.

Any thoughts?

I`m not sure but if anyone has tried a combination of the two meds the insight would be helpful.
