My daughter's biggest ADHD symptom that is a constant struggle is her lack of ability to:
1. work towards a long goal and challenge herself
2. Only being interested in new things and environments that are novel and losing interest as soon as things get tough
I know that medication helps with focus during school and activities, but can it also help her with finding things less boring or persisting through difficult activities?
She was on medication for a bit, but the side effects were crazy and we stopped. We are considering a new medication, but I want to make sure if we are medicating her that we are getting at the symptoms that are her biggest challenges and not just medicating areas where she is alright.
