My 5 year old son has just been diagnosed by a child psychologist as ADHD, and I am meeting with his pediatrician tomorrow morning to go over medication options. He is having an extremely hard time in school and extra-curricular activities to the point where he has nightmares about getting in trouble, and I am so excited that he might finally have some relief...but of course, I am also afraid for him and nervous about medications. Let's just say I have a very long list of questions for the pediatrician tomorrow! My big question for you guys is for parents with kids who are on ADHD medications...which behaviors seem to have the most improvement, and which do you still have to deal with (even to a lesser degree) once your child is medicated? My son's biggest problems are getting out of his seat and talking out of turn. He is constantly on the go at school and sitting through a lesson is sooo hard for him. Sometimes he seems to just totally not care about consequences, and sometimes it's like he doesn't even hear instructions. At home he's constantly talking, constantly moving, and since he wants others to be engaged with him all the time he's constantly aggravating! Other kids get annoyed by him because he wants to play constantly, even when THEY are trying to listen and learn. But our biggest problem is figuring out which behaviors are relative to the ADHD, which are just his personality, and which are habits. I guess I'm just wondering what kind of changes to expect! Thanks!
