Hello. I am new here and looking for some guidance, advice etc. I am the mother of an 11 year old wonderful, fun, loving, caring and compassionate son. He has been diagnosed with ADHD pretty early on at age 6. We have had it under control with medication, but for the last 2 years its been bad. It seems like every medication we have tried he becomes very emotional and angry, and sometimes defiant and he does not act this way off the medication. We are seeing a professional that has a lot of experience with adhd. But it is so frustrating trying all these different medications with the same side effect. The professional is telling us that this may be an underlining cause that is magnified when he takes his medication. I dont believe this. He is not emotional and angry kid. He is funny, caring, sympathetic, and easy going. If anyone has any advice or anything to offer please help!
