Starting medication, scared

Rhonda - posted on 03/23/2018 ( no moms have responded yet )




Hello, I have an 8 year old son who has ADHD and ODD and he has been prescribed Strattera 10mg to start. I do not want him on medication but feel at this point in his life he needs it. He is so angry and argumentative and I have tried him on stimulants such as concerta which he had an allergic reaction to and vyvanse, that one he lost weight and never slept. I have been reading about this medication and idk if this will be right for him. I have him the first dose today but worry if I’m doing the right thing. Any people have any success on this medication? Thank you
