Father with 8yo with ADHD

My daughter is 8yo and has been diagnosed with ADHD. We are having some issues with her meds (had a very bad reaction to Zoloft which she is now off of but we are still dealing with the side effects). Concerta is working really well but we are really worried about her weight loss (6lbs which for a petite kid that only weights 57lbs before this is concerning).

My primary concern after her weight loss is the high level of anxiety that she started experiencing after being on Zoloft for just over a month or so. There has been very little sleep for a few weeks now as she has issues staying asleep and getting back to sleep.

Anyway just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. We're in Sacramento CA by the way.
