My daughter used to be slim until she turned 8 one summer and became sleepy and gained weight. When school resumed, we were notified by the school about her sleepiness. Then she does not finish school work and we we use all night 12am or more finishing home works. After suffering all night finishing the homework, she would not turn her homework in. Now the school is telling us we are not doing anything, but we have been seeing the doctors. We went for Sleep Study, the doctor told us she is sleeping good, but she might have narcolepsy. The sleep doctor wanted her on Ritalin which is not a cure but something that might make her stay awake in class. We saw an ENT doctor that says her tonsil and adenoid is okay, but wanted us to do an adenoidectomyto see if it will help. Her primary doctor says her adenoid is okay and she does not need it removed. The new doctor we saw this past week wanted her to be on Adderall XR. Reading on internet, I don't know if I want her on it. I am scared of the side effect. I don't like medication that is not temporary and my lead to psychosis She is being picked on in class and laughed at. She has problem making friends, and in this America, it is a big deal for kids not having someone to play with. Concern father.
