NHL’s First Day With No Singulair = No Checks!
NHL has been off of Singulair for less than 24 hours now and what an improvement! Yesterday, he had 5 checkmarks for bad behavior, including for drawing on his chair. Normally, you can only get 3 per day so 2 of those would have transferred over to today. Once NHL’s teacher heard about the Singulair theory, though, she decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and start him off today with no checks.
Apparently, it was like night and day! He listened, had body control, didn’t act out or yell. He pinched a bit on the playground, but that was it. B called me up after picking him up and put him on the phone. He proudly told me that he got NO checks today and got a sticker for being so good!
Maybe it is too early to be so certain that it was the Singulair, but he hadn’t had a single no-check day while on it. It seems a little too coincidental that the first day off of it would also just happen to be his first no-check day. So I’m pretty certain now that all of his behavior problems were Singulair related. Here’s hoping that his behavior improves even more as the days go on and the residual Singulair drains from his system.
