Why does hyperactivity increase after months on the protocol at stable doses?

Many issues can trigger a worsening of behaviors, such as hyperactivity, that will need to be addressed to get recovery back on track. Often these issues go undetected by parents simply because the child cannot communicate that they may be experiencing pain or discomfort. Things like dental, sinus, bladder, ear infections, or severe allergies can derail the recovery and significantly impact behaviors. nnThe increase in hyperactivity is not related to a relapse or a regression. When this occurs, it is often due to a drop in blood pressure to the child’s head from either pain (teeth?), emotional stress, or an infection (sinuses or middle ear). Please see the included checklist for common triggers.
