ADHD in Boys
scared about taking medication for adhd
I was diagnosed with adhd at age 6. It has affected me all of my life. My mom never put me on medication because she thought I could manage without it. Still it’s taking its toll especially in my grades. I’m seeing a psychiatrist. I have the option of taking them. I’m just scared of the side effects it’ll have on me. I want to take them because it’s just so hard to manage life but I’m scared that the medication could make it worse and give me other disorders. This decision is so hard. Very confused.
