Ugh, so my son is almost 8. He was diagnosed ADHD last year and put on Adderall. He was doing really well on 5mgs for a while...but it's just not working anymore. His doctor had us up him to 10 mgs but he's not handling it well. He was having tics and not eating so the doctor had us go back down to 5. The 5 is just not enough so we are taking about other options at this point. I am so scared and just don't knwo what to do.
He has told us that Metadate/Ritalin will prob give him the same problems as Adderall as far as the tics go....and he talked about Strattera which is a pill you have to swallow, and my son hasn't ever swallowed a pill. He definitely need something because he is very disruptive and does not learn in school when he doesn't take meds, but I'm just so stuck
Does anyone have any advice or has experience with this?
Thank you so much.
