Do you have any ADHD children?

My SK is ADHD, and is currently undergoing some meds here soon to help him out at home. Does your child listen better to instructions? Sleepy? Larthargic? More hungry?
Please dying to know how this might change my SK's behavior.

Both of my kids have ADHD. Not surprising when 7 out of 8 of my siblings and me have it.

I have put both my kids on meds. Both different kinds. I have noticed that they both do better in school, there grades went from c and d to a and b.

But they both added a little weight. Not a lot like 5 to 10 lbs. They both still had sleeping problems but we fixed that with a mild sleep med.

I would say to watch and see what works for them.

My grandson was put on medication for ADHD when he started kindergarten. He lost his appetite, and was more lethargic. When my daughter began homeschooling, she took him off the medication, and he does fine. They simply weren't teaching him anything new in school and he was bored, therefore "hyper". Perhaps your SK needs a little more mental challenges?
