So I'm a stepparent and we have my stepson for a part of the summer. He was beginning to show signs of ADD/ADHD and was abused by his stepfather. CPS got involved before my husband could put in the motion to receive custody and his maternal grandfather now has custody. Her parents are strongly opposed to my husband receiving custody (we live out of state) so it's been a long road and we're not really informed on health choices nor are we really allowed input.

We have yet to see anything that would tell us he got an official diagnose of ADD or ADHD but it does appear he's being treated for it.
His current regimen is:

Intuitiv 1mg in the am
Concerta 27mg in the am
Clonidine 0.1mg at bedtime

I'm severely displeased with the Clonidine choice but it is what it is. This combination keeps him chronically constipated and he generally drinks juice with a laxative every 2-3 days and sometimes if he won't drink his juice then he gets an enema. I'm trying to avoid that by keeping him full of fiber. We've got Benefiber in apple juice but until that builds up in his system what's a safe laxative that we can give him. I don't want his system to be any more messed up than it already is.
