Hey, My name is Kim. I'm from Toronto, Canada. My 12 year old son's pedatrician use to tell me when he was 8 that he had add or adhd but i never did anything about it. I guess i was hoping he would outgrow it. I still dont consider him to hyper but he is always fidgeting, gets easily annoyed, very anti social, doesnt have many friends and not doing well in school. Over the years i've seen his report cards and the teacher writes...very smart ....could do much better if he tried harder. easily distracted etc. So since he will be going into grade 8 next year and then highschool the year after that i decided to try medication. He was recently put on Vyvanse. I feel so bad about it though, the first day he took it he was so quiet and looked relaxed like almost high is that normal. I dont know what to expect or what is normal. He also doesnt want to eat much. What should i do? am i making the right choice? i'm so confused

It shouldn't make him high--it is not something I've encountered or read about. It can make him calm, though. The not eating is a very normal complaint. If you are concerned, talk to your dr. There are lots of medications, and then the dosage can also make a huge difference.

Ditto to Star Light. He shouldn't be stoned. Robbie is VERY calm when he's on his meds. The not hungry thing is a very normal thing, we give Robbie pediasure.

^ ditto to the other ladies, sounds like either not the right meds or too much of the meds, I would ask to try a different medication.
(((hugs))) Hang in there hun, I know how frustrating it can be.
