My son is 7 and was just diagnosed with ADD. And the school our pediatrician are strongly pushing meds. The doctor wanted to start him on stimulant meds because they work faster. I asked if we could try nonstimulant first and she said yes. I juust gave him his first dose of intuniv. I am not feeling good about my decision at all. I feel i am not informed enoughor have not tried natural things. i feel so alone on this. i think he is just a great 7 yr old little boy. I have teouble talking about it and not crying. do any of you other moms out there have any words of wisdom? i wish there was a a blood test or something for this dianosis.just some check marks on a questionaire just doesnt seem like enough to put a kid on meds.
