My son has been "catagorized" as ADHD and on meds since he was in first grade (he is now in 3rd grade). The problem is that any medication he has tried has only worked for about a week and then it seems like he builds a tolerance. He also, like many others, has horrible emotional side effects from most of the meds. I am getting to the point where I am wondering if he really has ADHD or if there is something else going on. He is a very intelligent little boy, but stuggles to complete anything and his grades are suffering. I am also struggling to find anyone who can help us work through this. Does anyone have any suggestions/comments? We are at our wits end and I don't know what to do anymore.
