ADHD/ODD

Ahhhhh. I hate it. I hate It! I hate ADHD/ODD. My son is taking Ritalin. They just up his meds to 10mg. A pill at 8am, 10am, 1pm, 3pm. Today was the first day of the 10mg. And she. He got home he was different. I guess the meds have not wore off yet. He didn’t want to eat dinner. I’m just so frustrated. It’s so hard for him. I wish I could take it all away. Why my son? He is so sweet and loving but a holy terror at school. I just don’t know what to do anymore. I hate giving him meds. But i have tried everything…. I just hope it gets better. One day at a time. One day at a time.

  1. That sounds like TOO MUCH Ritalin. I believe that your little boy is sweet and loving. Maybe he has autism, like my grandsons. The older one got expelled from 3 preschools.
    But he is 16 now and getting excellent reports from school every single day. Ask your pediatrician about abilify for your son. It is not a stimulant. It really helped my boy.

  2. I’m on a non stimulant for ADHD. I do not think it is helping. I’m not sure I really have that. But I do have issues that might be a part of it. Even my doctor has ADHD! It’s no fun because you can tell when someone is not taking it or it wore off. I’m sorry to hear of your son’s problem. Kids today have it hard and they don’t deserve this. I sometimes wonder if Drs. know how much medicine to prescribe people.
