My 5 year old son has been diagnosed with ADHD since he was 3 years old. He is currently taking Adderall XR 5 mg and Clonidine .1mg. Lately he has been extremely defiant. He won't listen to us, he will flat out tell us no when we remind him of basic rules (like not hitting his little sister), he throws horrible fits where he screams and yells for hours. I have actually had to restrain him a couple of times to prevent him from hurting himself (yeah, it probably sounds horrible, but I couldn't think of anything else to do but hold his arms to his side). It's getting worse than it's ever been. He is waking up in the middle of the night and getting into everything. I have tried so many things to try to resolve his aggression and defiance, but I am running out of ideas. I have had enough and I don't know how much more I can deal with. Mommy time-outs only work for so long, lol! I need help, but I can't even get an appointment with his dr for 3 weeks. I feel like such a failure, not being able to deal with my own child. I know this can't continue for much longer, he is going into Kindergarden in the fall, and I don't want him to have social or educational issues due to his behavior. Does anybody have any advice?
