About two months ago my 5 year old son was diagnosed with ADHD. I spoke with my peds and we started on Methylphenidate 10 mg. There was no change in his behavior and so it was uped it to 20 mg at which point he started to get very emotional. His meds were changed to Adderall 10 mg and he again became very emotional. Both meds seemed to help on his ability to focus in school and he was doing a better job keeping his hands to himself. I just couldn't have him so emotional. Spoke to the peds once again and we decided to take him off everything for 2 weeks. He started getting trouble again but continued to make progress. This past Friday we started him Intuniv.
We have a lot of issues at home with following directions and fighting with his sister. I feel like I am loosing control. I tried and discipline using time outs or taking electronics away but he does not seem to care. I am looking for help! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
