My son has been diagnosed ADHD. He was given Zoloft. The results were terrible. He totally freaked out. His pupils were so dialated that he looked "wild eyed". He had no inhibitions and did not care about any consequences. He wrecked the car, left high school, and generally did things that he normally would not. He is now on Wellbutrin and doing great. I am really against Zoloft. The school counselor said she has had students diagnosed ADD or ADHD take Zoloft and try to commmitt suicide because they felt so out of control and had no cares about anything.
