Looking for Information About ADHD and Meds
Our 8 year old has recently been diagnosed with ADHD (hyperactivity and impulsivity subtype) and we are researching the use of medication. We were wondering if folks who have been on long term ADHD medication could share about their experience. Have you been able to stay with the same medication for a long period of time (years, from what age)? Have you had to change your dose over the years? Any thoughts on serious side effects like addiction, depression, bipolar etc?
