New parent here - 12 year old dd with severe ADHD

TennisMom1 profile image

Hello, wanted to say hi and introduce myself. My daughter was recently dx'd with severe ADHD. She also has anxiety, which we've known about for a long time. She takes medications for both. She recently took the genetic test from her prescribing psychiatrist - looking forward to hearing the results and I hope that will pinpoint a better med for her. Looking forward to reading posts from everyone and hopefully offering some support to others. :)

Hi there. Check out my recent post where I posted my daughters genectic testing results. It does help... although changed little bc we were actually right on track with the meds. I love the science behind it though..its like an answer to the 'why'

I was not aware of gentetic testing to see what drug might work best for her. I will ask my psychiatrist about it. My daughter is now on her 3 rd trial of ADHD med. I wish my psychiatrist had recommended it earlier.
