It took me a very long time to decide that my daughter should try medication for her ADHD. I tried everything, diet, fish oil, therapy etc and read up on everything I could before I made the decision that I thought was right for her. She has her medication to help her with her school day and her confidence has increased big time. She dosent have it on weekends. I'm sick of being told by friends of friends and people that dont really know us that I'm making a big mistake and should just be more patient with her. It has nothing to do with patience for me because she is at school, this is helping her relax enough to learn and concentrate. This is her future. I know about side effects but they havent been a problem with us. Do people think that we are such terrible mums who dont look into this kind of thing seriously before we give our kids medication.
