What medicine would be best for my 7 year old who was just diegnosed with ADD? Right now he is on Concerta. It seems to be working well but I would like to know what, if any, meds work better or in a different way. I should also add that he is not hyper AT ALL! He just cannot seem to process his thought well and follow directions. He is also very forgetful!! but like i said, things are getting better. He has been on Concerta for almost 2 months. His mother wont give it to him when he is at her house on the weekends or when he doesnt have school. He lives with her one week and then us the next. The doc says its a 30 day pill but what can I do if she is not giving it to him? Please help!!
