My oldest son has been taking concerta for about a year. His resting heart rate has been almost double the normal rate consistantly for the last several months. The doctor wanted to put him on Atenolol. I followed my intuition and asked her to monitor him off the medication for the next month or so. That leaves me trying to decide wether or not to put him on both (if neccessary) next month. I am praying he will find he doesn't need the meds. If he does though, do any of you have any experience with this? I am open to changing his diet ect.. He has ADD with out the hyper. Dreamy and kind.
