...but I think, it has to happen My 15 yo DS was diagnosed with ADHD about 1.5 years ago-so it's a later diagnosis. Not for lack of trying, over the years it's been thought of as sensory issues and autistic features. Anyhow, we did try Vyvance and then Adderall a year ago. With unacceptable side affects. At the insistance of ds's counselor (whom he saw for anxiety) we had a 'med eval' with a phychiatrist and he recommend Strattera. I was so hesitant...so we did not. Counselor was not happy with me. However...ds has trouble controlling his impulses and seeks excitement (classic ADHD teen I know!) and got himself in trouble last week. VERY uncharastic of him! He's also still struggling terribly in school. As part of consequences/help, he will be going on this or another med ASAP-like, next week, as soon as I get a prescription. He is required to, and has agreed to, be compliant with meds ( I required this! momrules), after last week. I think the time has come. Those of you whom have dealt with ADHD in teens, does this sound like a plan? I am hoping the meds will help him in school and to control impulses like excitement-seeking. What do you guys think? How is Strattera? Is something else better? BTW, I have 4 other kids who do NOT have adhd so this one throws me for a loop!
