My 10 yr old son that live 13,000 miles away from me was just diagnosed with ADHD and was prescribed Adderrall, without a 2nd oppinion! Now he is a very active boy and dosn't like to take alot of teasing from his 8 yr old sister and does hit every now and again, he has no problem making friends, very social and his 3rd quarter grades were

Lang arts 100A
Handwriting E S
Read E 84C
Spelling E 80C
Process writing-Ele S
Math E 84C
Phys Ed S

He has had alot of tradgedy's and changes in the past 5 years, I was in MV accident diagnosed C4-C5 vent dependant quadriplegic, then he was moved out of State, his mother has remarried twice since then, and the last being his half sister was severley handicapped at birth requiring alot of attention.
Considering everything he's been through could he have been misdiagnosed for something else? Thanks for any and all advice.

Chuck
