Hey new to the group with lots of questions! Ok so my almost 8 year old was diagnosed with ADHD and odd when he was 4 . Although we knew way before. Anyways since the age of 4 he has been on Adderall xr. He is now up to 30 mgs a day and the doctor has decided to add guaficine which is a blood pressure meds that has been known to help children with ADHD. He hasn't taken his first dose cause I'm afraid it may be to much meds for his tiny self. He used to be 99 percentile for height and chunky.. now he is in the 45 percentile and very skinny! He never eats. And has no want to participate in any activities. He's withdrawn..and has a very hard time interacting with others..smart as heck. But this year has started doing awful in school. Knows the material but just leaves it blank. What meds worked best for your children? I don't know what to do anymore.i feel like a horrible parent for making him take this medication that makes him fill so withdrawn
