.I have been reading some the messages about ADD and Adderall. I am very nervous. I just took my son to a neurologist yesterday. He has been having problems in school since kindergarten. Finally in 7th grade I had him retested. He is getting extra help and in the resource room but still has problems focusing, his attention span is short and distractibility. I did not want to put him on medication but after going to his meetings at school with the psychologist I finally went to the doctors. We have to go back in October with a form that has to be filled out by his teachers in school. They might put him on meds but I am so nervous. He is a teen. I do not want him to get aggressive and moody and into trouble. I am scared. Help me!
