my 9 year old son has ADHD has been for 4 years, I keep trying to get him in to a therapist in addition to his reg DR who has been prescibing his meds, first concerta they kept uping his dose until I said this isnt working!! then strattera ( good for a year) then his new DR who I do not like and wasnt even given a choice about having since we are military... wants us to try adderall, so I agree, it made my so MEAN, and aggressive and a lot of other things so he is now back on strattera. any way along the way I have taken him to a few different psychologists but the 1st guy only wanted to talk to me. then I just went ahead and put ian in OT for a year and he loved that so now I have to wait until dec 3rd to get him back into another pshychyatrist, and this is only going to be for med management! are these freaking DR's even going to speak to my kid or are they just going to write a presription??? its really sick! I think they just want our money!!!!! it takes 2 months to get an apointment and then all the guy is going to do is give him some pills, and every place I called is an even longer wait! I know I sould crazy but I am just soooo upset right now1 I just want some help for my kid! (and me) I am in my own therapy so I dont go nuts myself dealing with my ADHD kid! any one else out there feeling like this?
