We go back to the pediatrician today. My son has now been on the medication (vyvanse) for 4 weeks and is doing well. I do not like the emotional state he was in but he seems to be a lot better this week. The doctor keeps insisting that he see a psychiatrist which we are doing next week. The thing that really bothers me is the doctor saying my son is ODD. I understand the ADHD stuff and the medicine is really helping him with that but I totally disagree with the ODD diagnosis. Each time I say something, like about the emotions, the doctor says get him to a psychiatrist! It's ODD. ODD isn't emotional is it? Difiance isn't in tears! The is the opposite of how the child has been. This week in school he has been getting in a little bit of trouble but nothing major. Just regular kids stuff in my opinion... Things like telling a girl not to stare at him, talking in the hallway.... but the other day he did hit a girl because she coughed on him. I think that has more to do with having a brother that is 8 years older than ODD. So I don't know what to say to the doctor when we go this afternoon. Any advise? My confidence level in this doctor is very low but I'm trying to give him a chance. I've been wrong before.
