I've always though my son was adhd or add but never took him to the doctor for it he turned 3 in May and we just relocated to a different state and this new dr seen him once I didn't even mention his behavior he seen and asked quetions then prescribed him ritlin .25mg and clonidine .1mg. Since he was 1 I've notice his behavior he would climb out of his baby bed and pulled plugs out of walls like the whole socet. As he got older his behavior got worse, he don't sleep well at night and is up around 4am every morning he climbs in my cabinets spills things everywhere he's snuck out the house a few time not since we moved here though I've learned tricks to lock up better, he's very crafty on sneaking around and getting around what I try to make a safe environment for him. I have 5 children and he's the only one whos had behavioral problems sometimes I feel like I'm a horrible mom and just don't know what to do anymore. He trys to run out in traffic he thinks its funny so now everywhere we go he has to wear a toddler harness, he was almost hit by a truck and he thinks its the funniest thing ever to try to run out in traffic. He does flips down my basement stairs he thinks it funny when he hurts himself also. He's not mean to his siblings and he don't really have any anger problem he's just destructive and likes breaking things. In some ways I think he's to young for medications but I'm worried he'll hurt himself. But is 2 appts with this dr really enough for him to dignose him with adhd? And are these medications safe for a 3 y/o?
