I’m new to the site. My son was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 3...at the age of 6 we tried Vyarin (it really didn’t do much of anything IMO) last year we decided to begin medication. It has been a long year and I’m trying to be patient, but it feels like we are on the wrong path. He takes 15mg of Adderall in the morning and 2mg of Intuniv in the evening. The Adderall wears off at approximately 3PM each day and he is an emotional wreck. The Intuniv is meant to help with sleep but my son wakes up multiple times throughout the night. His doctor is very nice and s a specialist in this area, but he is very reluctant to make any changes. I’m starting to wonder if it’s an insurance issue. Anyhow, my biggest concern is the emotional effect I see this having on my son. He truly believes he can not do anything right despite my constant reassurance and cheerleading. I know I get frustrated at times and can be short with him, but I do my best to be calm and show him I am his #1 fan. I think it would be great for him to have a friend or friends that also have ADHD and who face the same challenges, but don’t know anyone in our area (Peoria, AZ). If there are any families out there that deal with the same challenges and are in our area, please reach out...we’d love to meet you.
