My son was just diagnosed with adhd and he is taking Ritalin for it I am not sure were what to expect his father who does not live with us told me he has adhd and add witch I just learned about when I told him our son has it. I have been told by friends that i should expect him to have mood swings once the pills are in his system and that is cocaine?!? I am not even sure if he has adhd he has been in school for 3 years and he can finally wright his name good the doctor had me and his teachers fill out paper work when I was told at his parent teacher conference that he was having a lot of problems focusing and had to be reminded all the time what he was doing. I am just wanting to know what kind of reaction I could expect with him on Ritalin.
