My son was diagnosis as ADHD at age 4, he is now 8. We've been on all ADHD medications. Four weeks ago he was on Strattera-20 mg in the AM and Adderall 10 mg in the AM and 5 mg midday. We changed that recently to Strattera 20 mg AM and Ritalin 10 mg in the AM, 5 mid morning and 5 in the afternoon. The Ritalin wasn't giving us better results. Yesterday we saw a new MD (had been seeing a Psychiatrist for 4 years) who specializes in ADHD/Mood Disorders. He came highly recommended. Carson was put on 2.5 mg Abilify the 1st day, 5 mg for 5 days and 7.5 mg after that. He will saty on the Strattera but has been taken off Ritalin for the time being--I think to see how the Abilify works first? I love my son VERY much--but I feel very lost and confused. I have already lost my temper with him this AM over him not taking a spelling test AND getting sent home from school (AGAIN). I know I should be the lovng,kind forgiving mother--but this is very hard. His behaviour seems worse.
