Parents of ADHD Children
My daughter is 11 and has ADD (not the H really). She was on Ridilin last year and although it helped with her focus at school changed her behavior drasically. She became emotional, angry, cried alot and generally in a bad mood. At first I thought it was puberty but she has been off meds all summer and has no behavior problems. We also tried Adderall which was slightly better. I am looking for an alternative, maybe a natural substance (other than just fish oil, which we tried with no real success).
Someone I know tried Diamond mind and it seemed to help. Anyone try anything they would recommend?
