I'm not sure the proposed process of skipping medication on a given day would even work. If enough of the medication remains in the body even though a single dose is skipped, there would be no observable behavior change during the test interval, though observable change might occur days later. If too little medication remains in the body as a result of the skipped dose, physical as well as behavioral symptoms might be magnified with harmful results to the child. I just can't see an positive aspect to doing this.

Can I ask, are you suggesting this "trial and error" strategy based on personal experience with your own children? Or sound research? Or are you just winging it? No doctor my family has worked with has ever endorsed such a practice.
