I emailed Akila's Dr. yesterday and said we needed to stop the new medication. He agreed. We are phasing her off of it this week and are going to try a new one next week. I am very relieved.
Michael and I talked last week about how to make the mornings go more smoothly and are trying a few new things. The main thing is that we are getting the kids up an hour early, instead of 30 minutes early, hoping that Akila's meds have more time to take effect before we have to leave before school. We are also being more hard core with Akila on the fact that she has to take her meds right away and does not get breakfast until she takes them.
Day 3, and it has worked well so far. I am sure not all mornings will go smoothly, but hopefully it will help a little.
