I took my 5 y.o. old difficult child to the pediatrician to discuss his behavior. We have been seeing a private psychologist who has diagnosis'd him with ADHD combined type and severe ODD. I told the pediatrician dr about this and said I wanted to rule out anything medical first and he did nothing except tell me the names of two ADHD medications (Concerta and Focalin XR) to look up on the internet and then let him know if we wanted to start a trial. I would have thought he would do a full physical on him - at least look at him, take blood, something. So many medical problems can present like ADHD. Thyroid, allergies, diabetes, hypoglycemia, lead poisioning, tonsils (causing sleep apnea), etc. What kind of experience have you all had with this? Is there something specific we should be asking our pediatrician dr to check? Should I find a new pediatrician dr?
