Puberty and ADHD is what I'm dealing with and it's driving me round the bend. My son is using Concerta and even though I have physically given his tablet every morning I've just yesterday realised that he wasn't swallowing it. He doesn't want the teachers to know he has ADHD. He is terribly moody and aggressive. He is 14 years old and in all this time no doctor has spoken about another condition besides ADHD. Is there always another condition attached to ADHD like being bipolar etc?? What would be the best strategy to use with him at this point? I am feeling very frustrated. I'm trying to support him with his school work but it seems as if he's on a path of self-destruction and he doesn't want to listen to anything because he believes that everything he says and does is correct. He seems to lie quite a bit...or make up a version of the truth to suite himself. Is this normal??
