Hi there! My son is 6 years old. He was diagnosed with ADHD by his councoler. He is taking Concerta 18 mgrs. a day. His father and I are seperated and we have joint custody. He tells me that when he is with him on his weekends that he is hyper with out his meds but when he is on his meds he is not hyper. Well when he is with me even though he is on his meds he is still hyper. Like for instance, he went to his grandma's and help her put up Halloween decorations. She told me he was all over the place. He had all of his spiders hung on the web even before his sister and her could even get started hanging theirs. She called me up and told me what had happened ad that I should have him evaluated again. He might need a med change. I talk to his father about it and he told me that he thinks the meds are working for him and we don't need a med change. I need some advice here. What should I do? I don't want my son doped up on medicine to where he wont have a childhood. If any one can give me some advice here or has had the same issues, then please let me know? Thanks again!
