This is my first conversation on this site and I am lost, confused, sad, etc.
My son was diagnosed about a year and a half ago with ADHD. I was against the whole medication thing and tried doing things on my own but nothing seemed to work. He is 8 years old and is now in 3rd grade and he's been doing horrible. I finally took him to the doctor and they prescribed him Adderall XR 5mg...I am scared to give it to him cus I have no idea how he'll react. Please help and share your stories with me.
