I don't post here usually but I need some help/advise and did'nt know where else to post. Here is a quick background:

My son Jordan was diagnosed with ADHD in 2007 when he was 6 and he is now 8. He is currently on EQUASYM XL (ritalin). He has 50mg a day. He has 30mg in the morning and another 20mg in the afternoon.

Recently Jordan is becoming angry and has outbursts which is new to us. He has recently started harming himself too Last night he was stetching his t-shirt so I asked him to stop it and he just flipped. He was hitting and slapping himself and he bit hiself in about 7 different places. He has bitten himself so hard that all the bite marks are bruised Ive asked him why he did it and he does'nt know.

His doctor who usually deals with him is now semi-retired so he does'nt work everyday so I can't get hold of him to speak to him.

I am so upset and don't know what to do. Sometimes I feel like he hates me for some reason

((HUGS)) My best advice is to find him a doctor that specializes in ADHD and associated disorders.

It may just be a reaction to the meds.

oh hun, you need to get him in ASAP!
it sounds like he might have some other depression issues or some side effects with his meds. Hurting himself is not good. You need to call someone.
Please KUP!
((((hugs))))

Thanks for the replies...he has been ok today *so far* Amanda the doctor he sees is a specialist, I rang his secutary today and I have had his appointment pulled forward. Its on the 20th of this month.

I hope he is'nt like he was yesterday ever again, it broke my heart

He has been on these meds since he was diagnosed, could they really be the problem?
