Um, if you are medicating him for ADHD, you should be talking to a doctor about this and medicating in accordance with his doctor's instructions, not a bunch of women on the internet!!!

I wanted to clarify (just in case it is necessary) that the OTC meds I was referring to would be like Tylenol or something. ADHD meds need to come JUST from your child's doctor and JUST prescribed specifically for him.

the right dose of what exactly? if you are giving him medicine for his adhd then you should be getting the medicine from the doctor, who will tell you exactly how much to give him. if you are giving him prescription drugs without the doctor writing them, then you need to stop and take him to a doctor asap!

Right dose of what? This is, most likely, a question for his doctor. If you are talking about a prescription med.... it should have a dose listed.. or you can call the doctor/pharmacy that you got the med from. If you are talking about an over the counter med... they have doses listed on them and if you can't find one for his age/size.... it's not for him.
