My son is 4 and in Reception at school. During parents evening tonight the teachers recommended I visit the Dr about his lack of ability to concentrate. I am convinced now he has ADHD and am so worried because during my first 8 weeks of pregnancy I didn't know and was taking a large dosage of Effexor. I was under the impression I couldn't have children so becoming pregnant was not an issue. Now I am consumed with worry and guilt. I don't want to go to the Dr's in case it is but life cant stay as it is, I am really struggling with his behaviour. I stopped the very day I found out I was having a baby and reports say it is particularly damaging in the 3rd trimester. I just don't know what to do and if the diagnosis comes back he is I know I will blame myself and perhaps with good cause.
