Hello, I'm new to the group and am looking for some advice! I am a step mom to a 12yr old girl who was diagnosed with ADHD 3yrs ago. We have tried just about every medication out there with little to no success. We tried behavioral therapy for a year and a half with little to no success. I have tried an elimination diet and supplements with little to no success. My husband and I decided to give our daughter a break from everything for the summer since this has definitely been trying for all of us. My step daughter is getting ready to start school and is going into middle school this year and I am very concerned about the transition from elementary to middle school will be for her. I am trying to get my husband to agree to try medication again but trying to get her to even take them is a struggle. Any ideas on how to get them both on board with trying the medication again? She really struggled last year with random outbursts in class, talking out of turn, walking around the class room in the middle of lessons, and getting along with other students (she got ISS for biting another student...). I'm just at a loss here and I really don't want to see her struggle this year in this new environment.
