ADHD in Boys
New adhd diagnosis drugs not working
My 6 year old son was diagnosed with adhd about a month ago. He was first prescribed ritalin 10 mg, which only made him emotional and had little effect on his hyperactivity and ability to focus. He is has now been on dexedrine 5mg for about a week and we still see very little change in ability to focus/calm down, and he is very emotional. The doctor said if the drugs were working correctly, the improvement in hyperactivity/focus would be significant. I’m just not seeing it. Anyone have similar experience?
