Re: 9 year old son with ADD
My son is 7 and was diagnosed at 5 with ADHD. When he was 6 he was additionally diagnosed with ODD (Opposition Defiant Disorder). He has been on several medications, including Sraterra, Risperdal, and Ritalin. My concern is that the medications don't work. I have had my son evaluated and re-evaluated, and have sought second, third, even forth opinions. All say he has has ADHD and ODD. What I don't understand is why the medications don't work if he has these conditions.
