My family has decided not to medicate our son. He has ADHD impulsive-type, plus moderate anxiety and Tourette Syndrome. The anxiety and TS are not diagnosed yet, but we are working on it. I manage the symptoms somewhat with a wholesome diet, and do not allow my family to eat anything colored with food dyes. I am not closed to medication, and the moment my son asks about medication to manage any of his symptoms, I will take him to the doctor to discuss the pros and cons, and decide together with him and the doctor the best course to go.
How do you manage the ADHD? Does your child have any other co-morbid symptoms along with the ADHD? How do you manage them?
