ADHD in 4 year old

Aja - posted on 12/08/2013 ( no moms have responded yet )




Hi All,

I am new here, so please bare with me. I have two children who both have ADHD. My youngest child who is 4 was just recently diagnosed. He was given Strattera. I have not been able to get him to take his medication. I have tried putting it in apple juice, and apple sauce and he does not like the taste. I have also tried to get him to swallow the pill, but he wont. I know that stattera is the only non stimulant medication out right now. I don't want him on a stimulant medication due to the side effects which my older son now suffers from. I plan on calling the doctor tomorrow to let him know that at this time, the stattera is not an option for my son. Does anyone know of any natural products that he could use to improve his inattentiveness.
