Hi I am a new member here and was very happy to find these boards for support. I have a 7.5 year old son, Tyler, who was diagnosed with ADHD about 7 months ago.
We have tried Ritalin ER, Adderall ER, and are currently on Ritalin 15 mg morning and 10 mg after school. Also the doctor wants us to try the Straterra, with it not being a stim and all so we have been on it for 6 days. Has it done much good for anyone? I have heard a lot of negative things and not too much good. I guess it either works or doesn't and really how long before you started to see results? I am weaning him off the Ritalin.
Also I am wondering if there are any natural ways to aid in sleep (herbal, etc). It is a struggle every night with Tyler going to bed and I am burnt out. Thank You so much for answering my questions.
