My son is 5 years old and he was diagnosed with adhd 2 years ago. I always thought that adhd is a myth an I am still having very hard time understanding that kids have to take medicine for that. 2 years ago my son was put on ritalin but side effects were horrible and after trying it for few times I stopped giving it ti him. Since then my son was kicked out from 4 preschools until we finally find the preschool where the teacher was able to control his behavior. However, he started kindergarten last year and our problem got worst. We did everything that school was able to offer so we can work together to control his behavioral problems. Recently, he got suspended from kindergarten for 3 days on 2 different incidents. We had to go back to his do tor who decided that the onky solution is to put him on adderall xr. I don't know what to do, I am totally against the medi ine at such early age but it looks like I don't have a choice.
