Hi everyone, I am new to Children with ADHD and i wanted to introduce myself. My name is Mistie i have been married for 7 yrs together for 10 yrs. I have 3 children 8, 4,& 3. My 8 yr old has ADHD she was diagnosed in August. She was put on Adderall, and has been doing very good on it so far. The only side effect she has from it is she has problems going to sleep. They put her on Clonidine to help her with that.
We decided to put her on medication due to her inability to concentrate at school. Last school year she was in 2nd grade and she was not doing good. She pretty much made all F's and she had a really hard time in school. In August we decided to get her diagnosed and the doctor said she had ADHD and ADD. Now that she is on the medication she is doing GREAT in school. She has been making good grades and she is focusing very well. I plan to take her off the medication durring the summer since the only reason i put her on the medication is so she would be able to concentrate at school. I look forward to talking to you all...
Well that is a great hear the meds work for her and I hope I get the same turn out for my daughter! But I asked the doctor if I can take her off the meds at the summer time she said she would not recommended cuz of you have to gradually take her down and then takes about a month to get back up to the level of meds in her system!
