I too have a son who has ADHD/ODD. We started noticing a lot of problems in daycare aroung the age of 3. He wasn't formally diagnosed unitl 5, medicated shortly after starting kindergarten. I too didn't want my child medicated - he can be very funny, happy and outgoing most of the time. He has a wonderful demenor - at times. I didn't want medication to take that away from him and me! But when his teacher and school phychologist told me that they truly beleived he was trying his best to behave in school and just couldn't - it broke my heart. How could I not help him? It has taken several dosage changes and three different kinds to find the combo that works for my son, but I think we found it. And he's taking doses that are on the lower end of the scale so he is in no way overmedicated or sedated like some kids are. He is plesant and so much more cooperative - still energetic but he is very athletic so we let him play outside as much as possible to burn off that energy. Meds have allowed us to keep him in a regular school classroom (currently 6, and in first grade) so this has been a God's send to me!
My son was 4 yrs. when diagnosed with severe ADHD and against what I initially wanted to do, I ended up finally medicating. We tried diet cahnegs etc etc, but due to sensory issues his was limited to begin with, so that didn't help. I had to weigh it out. Was it worse that I became the mom I never wanted to be, and all I did was yell at him and he had no idea why and could not help his behavior - and he stressed everyone out, or that I medicate him (even though I didn't want him on ADHD meds) and it actually work. He is 8 now and for us them medication is a God-send. We tried many diferent ones until hitting it on the head with Ritalin. He takes a lot but absolutely cannot be a functioning memeber of society without it. I could NEVER send him to school. Even now sometimes I try to miss the after school dose (or homeowrk dose) on the weekends and it reminds me of how badly he needs it. The flapping, jumping on furniture, running, loud talking, odd little noises and sounds that come out of him, inability to "look" at me when asked to do so, inappropriate behavior --- ugggh! It wears off and some nights are worse than others, but when it works it works well. All kids are different and if you do medicate it may take a while to find the right med for you. Please know that you are not alone with a little one that maye need this earlier than the norm. Also, my doc said old school was that it maye stunt growth etc., but they no longer preach that and my guy is within range ... skinny but in range. Hope it works out. Take Care.
I am amazed that the doctor prescribed anything at that age! What behaviors was he demonstrating? I have a 9 year-old boy with ADHD and our doctor waited until he was in 2nd grade to start medication for the condition - as long as we were able to manage him at home. It wasn't easy, but I'd do it again to keep him off of those meds until a later age because: 1) It does negatively impact their appetite 2) It is addictive and has to be gradually bumped up in dosage due to tolerance developing 3) The crash when the medication wears out is like your worst days X 2... I don't know about the slow growth but I will share that my son is a twin and his growth is concordant with his unmedicated twin's growth over the past 2 years. Hope this helps!
Please help me.. I'm a single mom with a 4yr old son with ADHD..I noticed his behavioral at age 2 but people would tell me its only the terrible 2 stage. His doctor prescribed me Adderall 5ml. Confused if I should start giving it to him. Will he become addicted, slow in growth, loss of appetite..etc So many questions! I'll take any advice.
Thank you for your help. As soon as things aren't going well I tend to panic and assume we are in for trouble. I will be patient and see how he does in the next few weeks.
It is definitely too early to contemplate any changes. It's not unusual for children to be a bit unsettled in the very early part of the school year. Allow four to eight weeks to go by and see how things are at that point. By them a routine will have been established, and for children who display ADHD (in particular, the hyperactive-impulsive seb-type), the structure of a routine is very beneficial. And, when you check in with his teacher, you may find that things at school are fine.
Good advice from portuguese mom...I am a behavior intervention case manager, working with the most severe ADHD kids in the school system. It could be that he is containing himself well at school, but that when he gets home he can let loose. Checking in with the teacher, even asking if you can check in with her/him via email every few days just to get an update would be wise. If after a few weeks the behavior is taking place at school, ask about having an IEP meeting, perhaps having a school behaviorist put together a behavior intervention plan to help him learn how to maintain boundaries while at school. It may be that the meds need to be tweaked a little, but give him a chance to work things out. Good Luck!!
Hi - I have a daughter with ADHD also. You need to talk to the teacher and make sure that the same issues are appearing in the classroom. He probably is doing well at school and comes home tired from the effort. Also, the change in routine upsets these kids with ADHD. Until he is settled into his routine, you can not conclude anything. It takes my daughter about four weeks. You need to have a routine that does not change much from day to day. Good luck.
