Oh My! That should have been Trying Hard NOT to kill my difficult child Its impossible to explain what I am feeling about my child right now, I love him so much, but I think I may kill him (not literally) he has always been ADHD and hard to motivate, but lately he has just been horrible. He is so defiant and argumentative, seriously I can't say good morning without a full scale blowout. His Dr, just prescribed Tenex in combination with his Concerta, which by the way does not seem to be working at all (concerta). Can anyone tell me what their experience's with Tenex have been? Although not perfect, things were so much better before puberty set it. I seriously can't get him to hold a pencil for 2 minutes, he spends longer arguing with me than it would take to do anything I asked him to do. He would have failed 7th grade had I not done most of his homework the last month (if I chose to retain him I did not want him stuck with this group of teacher). Any insight anyone can give I would appreciate, as I am at the end of my rope. ps difficult child gained 65lbs in a year on risperadol I am hoping weight gain is not a side effect???
