Several posts ago I shared that we decided to try ADHD medication with Logan. I was a little conflicted about it but thought it would be smart to at least give it a try. Well, it lasted two days and we decided it was not the right course for us. Logan is normally a very happy little boy, but after only one day on the meds, he was an emotional basket case. And he kept telling me that his tummy hurt. He was just not himself, and we weren't seeing any positive effects. So we decided it wasn't worth it. But recently I've been doing research on vitamin supplements. I discovered some supplements that help the brain function more efficiently, and this particular brand (a brand I'm familiar with and I have used their products for the past 20 years) has had some success with children with developmental delays. So I called my mom and ordered some. They arrived, and then we were faced with the issue of how to get him to take them, seeing as they are in pill form. After staring at them and hoping for a brilliant idea to appear, we decided to crush them up a little and then dissolve them the rest of the way in milk. This worked alright, except that every time I gave him the doctored milk to drink, I kept thinking of Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, and the episode where his friend drugs him by putting Valium in milk, and he gets totally stoned. Logan's expression of confused distaste only added to it. But every time I said "Logan, drink your milk", he'd take a sip. And then wrinkle his nose and look at the glass like" what the hell is up with the milk lately?" So now we are making breakfast smoothies and mixing in the crushed vitamins. So far that's working better. But we don't even know if all this effort will even pay off. Oy vey.
