Hello! My 5 yr old son has been recently diagnosed with ADHD/ODD and has been on Adderall now for 4 days now. He always tested the limits and rules, but since being on the medication, his defiance for me has gotten a lot worse. If I attempt to give him a consequence for a bad behavior, he melts down on me when I try to give him time out. He kicks, screams, yells, and tries to hit me. I have taken things away, sent him to his room, and I don't let him start the time out until he can calm himself down and serve his time out without being out of control. I am trying to teach him self control and let him know he cannot treat me this way. It's gotten worse with the medications. The funny thing is that he doesn't do it much with anyone else except for me. I dont' get it at all. I called his dr. right away and he said it's most likely behavioral problems since he only seems to do it with me. The Adderall have helped him a lot in other areas so it's just getting through this. I don't know what else to do with him or why he's treating just me this way. It's not anyone else usually. He hates time outs and fights me all the time and I know it is probably an effective method for him now because he hates it so much and knows its a punishment to sit there until he has calmed down. Should I just hang in there? He has no other side effects from the medications. His appetite is well, sleep is well, and no stomach pain, etc..its just that the defiance for me has gotten worse. I think he is just testing me right now because on the medications he is well aware of what is going on and knows he is accountable and things are not accepted or tolerated right now. The dr. said he may no be used to the way the medications feel yet since it's only been 4 days. Anyone else been here? I just want to sit and cry all the time because I feel like he doesn't love me and he hates me!
