Parents of ADHD Children
On the verge of tears. This is all new to me.
I’m very new to ADHD. My daughter was just diagnosed and just put on meds with in the last 8 months. I’m lost with what to do next. The Daytrana patch was wonderful and helped alot but the side affects got really bad. We just moved her over to Intuniv (pill form) 2 weeks ago. She has a hard time swallowing pills but was doing great until I found out the last 5 days she has been lying to me about taking her pills. Not sure how to proceed. She told me the truth when I asked her so I’m not sure what a good consequence should be. I’m a patient parent but she has pushed all my buttons and I feel like I’m losing my mind.
