Im so gratefull for finding this board, I thought I was the only one out there with these problems. I have problems with-2 of my boys. My 7yr old and my 6yr old. My 6yr old is CLASSIC ADHD (according to his pediatrician.) we have an appointment. to discuss medication on the 7th. He is constantly "going"...never stops, he is doing poorly in school because he cant focus, he fights with-his brothers, etc. What type of medications did everyone start on? His doctor mentioned 4 different ones but Im so confused about which are best. Any advice? My 7yr old is a different story. His pediatrician. said that according to the questionaiir we (and his teacher) filled out, he shows SOME signs of ADD but he is VERY violent. Looking online, I would say he definately has ODD. He hits me, screams, curses, hits his brothers, destroys our property, slams doors, will not listen when my husband or I tell him to do something, he has threatened to kill us (and himself). He goes on rampages where he says he doesnt want to live, he has gone as far as grabbing a knife and saying he wants to die. Im scared....for him, for myself, and my other kids. These episodes usually happen if we take away his phones. Ever since he has been a toddler, he has had an obsession with phones. We have been advised that he needs to see a therapist before any medication can be given. What do I do in the meantime? I cant go on living in fear. He has always had a temper but for the past 6mo or so, things have gotten much worse. Any advice/suggestions you all may have are welcomed. Thank you and God Bless you all.
