ADHD in Boys
Just diagnosed son
My son is 6 years old & just diagnosed. I take him today for his checkup and to get the prescription. His father & I have joint custody and is 100% against medication. I have tried everything else thus far besides medicine.
My son has an above average IQ but his behavior at school may hold him back. His teacher keeps us informed daily and recently started seeing the counselor at school.
PLEASE give me any input, suggestions, best medicine for 6 year old boy with the least side effects. I’m heartbroken bc I feel it’s only me fighting for our son. His father states he won’t give it to him and will soon take legal action against me.
