: What did you decide to do? I am new to all of this and am desperately looking for some encouragement. My son is 6 and has started screaming, threatening, etc. I have him on Adderall but I think he's worse. The doctor says it's not high enough of a dose, but I wonder...
I thought the same thing with Michael. He just kept getting worse. The higher the dose the worse it got. I finally took him off it yesterday and he's starting to calm back down again. Hopefully by tommorrow or the next day he will be back to a "normal" ADHD kid. I would rather have him like that than the monster he turned into. He is 11 yrs old. I never tried ritlin because I was afraid of the side effects it caused and adderall was supposed to be better. I think if he has to be on medication, I would rather him be a little stoned than the monster he turned into. I hope you have better luck with it than I did. I strongly prefer none at all but when the school threatens you what choice do you have. Either he goes to school on medication or he is expelled.
