My name is Christie and I am 24 years old with three kids under 5. My oldest Destin who is 5 has been diagnosed with ADHD and since has been perscribed 10 mg of Adderall. His teachers think it has been a wonder pill and say they can't and wont handle him without his medication. I feel pressured by his teachers to keep him on it. He has been showing violent behavior when coming off of the meds witch just happens to be when he comes home. He has treatend to kill people, burn down our neibors house etc. But his therapist says their is nothing wrong with him. His father was murdered a year and a half ago and I think he has alot of anger about that but NOBODY IS LISTINING TO ME! I can't take much more of this... I would rather my son be hyper and bouning off the walls than to see him like this. I have offerd to sit in his class when he is off the meds and help with him but my offers are always shot down. I have been advised by his threapist to keep him on the meds till the school year is over because he has made alot of progress. I can only wonder if the teachers give him higher marks when he is more obediant beacause it doesn't seem to me that he has improved academicly on the medication. Not to mention that he has gone from 55 to 44 pounds! What should I do?

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
