Hi there, I wanted to post because my 7 yr old son has been diagnosed with adhd as well as mild autism. At first I didn't want to put him on the meds because there's alot of speculation that adhd isn't "real" and can be 'fixed' by other means. Well after spending 2 hours with his pediatrician who has been practising since I was practically born, we came to putting him on Adderall to see if it helps him to focus more.
Its been 4 days and I do see a difference. Hes on 10mg and boy do I see when it wears off lol He has a hard time going to bed but at least he will stay in bed...he is still defiant and will argue but he's just much calmer and can put forth the effort to do the things he likes for a longer period of time. He and his sister have ymca memberships so they take swimming lessons weekly and enjoy the groups for kids throughout the week to keep him busy. I really hope that he will be able to do better at school this coming year as he had suuuch a hard time with the work and keeping friends
Has anyone else dealt with this? Any suggestions for me to help him please?
