So I have always thought my son had ADHD.. he always always had trouble paying attention and is generally just off the wall. We started soccer and boxing classes and I have noticed there and at home, his attention has gotten worse. So I can only imagine how he is at school. His teacher has pulled me aside and told me days he could not stay still or pay attention what so ever. . I got the Vanderbilt form from the pediatrician and the teacher and I both filled it out. The doctor said Isaiah definitely has ADHD. He prescribed Isaiah 10 mg methylphenidate which is Ritalin. I am nervous and feel awful about putting my son on a medication.. but I know he is struggling at school and I don't want to see him have a hard time like I did. I wish my parents got me on something earlier.. I still just feel bad about it and am
Nervous about the side affects. Someone I know has their child on the same thing and said they love it, but it does suppress his appetite and sometimes has trouble sleeping. That worries me .. does anybody have any thoughts or have a child on something for ADHD?
