I have a seven year son who was just last year dx with adhd, The doctor had him on concerta, strattera to counteract side effects of stratterra and remeron for sleep and depression. I have recently stopped the meds and have him taking a natural vitamin called attention and also flax oil, he is doing somewhat better but still lacks the abilities of any child dx with this disorder. I have heard so many bad things about prescribed meds, Im scared to have him on anything. On the concerta he was not eating, he was unable to sleep and he got very depressed could not even do work fo 30 second let alone six hours. he is not learning disabled and the school just says there is nothing they can do except to put him in another large group still with no one on one. Im reaaly struggling on what to do. It seems like the only answer drs. and schools have are drugs. please if anyone has any suggestins im very open to them.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
