My son was diagnosed with A.D.D. when he was six years old. I tried everything not to put him on medication,finally we both agreed for him to try medication. Ritalin was perscribed,the dose was adjusted several times to no avail.The next was adderal this made him sick and it seemed his self esteem had completely gone.My son at this time was fifteen and stated to me please mom no more drugs.Wow what a statement for a mom to hear,i agreed all meds were stopped.Now he is almost seventeen severely depressed,overweight and has said he wants to end it all.He has also started cutting himself. I found a treatment center and is now under a Doctors care in a inpatient hospital.I pray i didn't do the wrong thing mabey by not putting him on meds sooner. If there is someone out there who is facing the same situation or has a sucess story,ideas,information please respond to my e-mail foxfiresss@aol.com Thank you
