My son was diagnosed with adhd about 1 1/2 years ago. he has had bad reactions to the meds. two of them almost hospitilized him for high blood pressure. The others make him act like a zombie. I chose, after discussing it with his doctor, to pull the meds and try behavioral therapy instead. Would like any tips or info from other parents who have chosen this.

My daughter was on Ritalin for a little over 2 years, As soon as she started taking it I noticed a big change in her mood, She would become very aggressive when it would wear off. Both my self and her counslor fought with the doctor to take her off of it, It wasn't until she caught 2 assult charges that the docotr finally took her off it.(She was 12 years old) We had put her on adderall which seemed to work for a while increasining it alittle at a time until she was taking 30mg of it, then it was like she wasn't taking anything. She would become more hyper. So now her doctor is trying her on a new medication. My advise to people who have their children on medication is research it very carefully read the side affects carefully. When I looked into the side affects of Ritalin it can cause anger and behavioral issues and or make them worse. It can also cause physchotic episodes in people. Adderall can cause some of the same effects.
