Well found this site while googling the internet. I am a mother of two boys. My oldest (12) is the source of head banging frustration. He was diagnosed with ADHD/ODD about 4 years ago. He was on concerta for 2 years and then taken off (at the recommendation of the doctor) For a year he did very well, but the behavioral issues started again at the begining of this past school year. His primary doctor started him on stratera but he had an allergic reaction then she tried foclin but it didnt help him any. He was previously on concerta which seemed to work but we didnt want him back on that for the side effects that he experienced. Right now we are still waiting for a medication re-evaulation and have been for the better part of the year. In the mean time his behaviors have worsened. I guess right now Ia am just feeling as though I am at my wits end, and was just looking for other parents who understand what we are going through. I will end this for now, it seems to be turning into a novel.---- enduring war everyday, combat_parent.
