Yes the medication did work. He had a wonderful doctor and ocupational therapist. The medication did not make him moody or like a 'zombie' like my husband likes to put it. I was extremely narrow minded before about medication and children. I always thought the moms with adhd kids were just looking for a reason to 'drug' their kids. Boy was I wrong. I felt guilty to put him on the meds. I had a lot of negative feed back from my family telling me I am damaging my child. I think now that he is off the medication he is worse off. He can't concentrate, he is agressive, he cries and is extremely emotional. So now I am following the natural route. Organic food, no colorents, no sugar, no caffeine. he is now on a high protein diet and we do ocupational exercises every day. So far its helped a little bit.

I know what you are going through. My 4 year old son is exactly the same. Maybe even worse. He cries and gets really upset when something breaks or doesn't want to work. I had him evaluated last year. He was diagnosed with adhd. They put him on meds but my husband did not agree with it. So we took him off it. He is back to being a highly emotional child. I can only pray things get better. Stay strong!!!!!
