Parents of ADHD Children
New to group
Hi all, I’m new to the page. My daughter who is 8 years old was diagnosed with ADHD 3 years ago. She is currently on vyvanse 60mg and intuntive 2mg. Our school district is very tough and pretty much want our children to be like quiet robots. Well my daughter is far from quiet she loves to talk. With the medication it is more controlled but she is very impulsive. We are going soon for a re-evaluation for medication. I’ve tried the natural treatments, diets, etc, because I was in complete denial over medication, but I have learned that it has helped her immensely in school. Her impulsiveness still shows through though. She can sit still even without the medication so she’s really not that hyper to say. Is there any one that may know of a medication that focuses more on the impulsiveness of ADHD?
