My son who suffered a tbi in 2009 when he was 13, had adhd before his accident, the Drs have now decided they want to try him on his old meds for adhd to try an help his impulsivity and concentration. My concerns are many, as i hated him being on meds for adhd when he was younger before his tbi as there are many side affects. So im rather concerned about him restarting them again especially after so long and also with his tbi, as he has many personality & social skills problems now i feel he may not cope. I was wondering if anybody else had used adhd meds since their tbi even if they didnt have adhd before their tbi, and how it has been for them? Im just trying to weigh up the options on whats best for him and helping him progress as he is struggling as he is but dont want to cause more problems!!
