My son who will soon be 7 has been diagnosed with adhd and odd since he was 5. I didn't want to medicate because I don't think that it is the answer to somethings. But it had gotten really bad I had 2 other children and was pregnant with my 4th and none of them had ever had these problems. But i had grew up with my brother who had the same thing and he was 10 years younger then me and seen alot of the same behavior from my son. Me and his father also had add and adhd problems and still struggle. He is now on 15mg of adderall xr which has been increased over the years but now seems to not work alot of the times and hes recently started having anxiety attacks and is taking vistoril at bedtime. We can't increase does of adderall because o his weight. I would really like some feedback on this very frustrated where to go from here.
