My 6 year old was diagnosed this year with ADHD. He has been taking Metadate to help him at school. He doesn't take it on the weekends because fortunately he is not aggressive, he just cannot focus or sit still at school. I was wondering about this summer, if I should continue to give him the meds or not. Like I said he only takes it for school so since he'll be home with me all summer I don't really think he needs it, plus it might be nice to give him a chance to gain some weight. I was wondering if anyone else was in a similar situation and how they are handling it?
