My son is adhd and has tourrettes. He is also naturally strong-willed. I have not had him put on meds because i don't want to alter his personality and then I feel like a failure if I do. Yet, I need some relief. He tortures everyone in the house and chaos has put me on the meds..literally. The other children in the home are greatly stressed too. It isn't the Tourettes that I can't handle, also there isn't a cure for that, but the adhd and the impulsiveness to irritate and cause trouble from the time he awakes til the time he goes to bed is unbearable. Please advice is so appreciated.
