Today we are trying the Daytrana patch for the first time on my college aged DD (have been avoiding ADHD meds and managed to get through high school with a lot of help from the resource room, but college isn't the same thing). Anyone have any experience with this? The doctor said it would probably be 5 days before we saw the full effect, but I thought it started working right away. Also, does your child take breaks from it? Her doctor wants her to take is on weekends too and only take breaks from it when she has longer break times. And what happens if you get it wet? She plays sports and wants to shower after practice in the evenings. Has anyone tried this? I am betting it will come off if she does this (but I don't know). Anyway, we just go it from the pharmacy and it is a little late in the day, but we are going to try it because she is on Christmas break and I want to see if it works OK or if she shouldn't use it once school starts up. I'm hoping for good results. I never wanted to use these medicines for her, but after her first semester grades I can see she needs them.
