My son is 9 years old and is thought to have ADHD. He can't seem to sit still for more than a few minutes at a time. Doesn't sleep at all at night(only about 2 hours a night). Takes him at least 2 hours to finish 10 homework problems. Doesn't listen at home or at school. Unable to ay attention to anything or anyone.He has been this way since birth. He started seeing a doctor who wants him on meds. Not sure what are good ones or bad. Anyone have some thoughts for me?
I've tried about every herbal and over the counter drugs I can and nothing works. I always hear that he is a boy and suppose to be that way. But I don't buy that. He gets good grades in school thats what I don't seem to understand. Not complaining about the grades but how can someone with ADHD have such good grades.
Please anyone give me help that might help me better understand this and help him a little better? Is medication the answer and does it work?
