I have a 8yr old son with add and have gone through the IEP process with the school. I have been reluctant to start meds, but I feel pressure from the school to put my son on meds. I'm not opposed to the idea of meds. Are some meds better than other? Are the side-effects bad? When is the best time to start? Vacation time or asap? I've lost confidence in the school advice, and need to hear from families who are living it.
