Again.. I am new to this, but I wanted to get opinions from all of you who have ADD and all of you who have treated your children with ADD. I have a 10 year old son who has just been diagnosed with ADD, ODD, and anxiety. I have been around a lot of children who are highly medicated because my mother takes care of them in her home for families who can't. I have always felt opposed to how much medication some of those kids are on, but tried not to judge since I knew I didn't know enough about it. It was just reaction to feel like, "oh my gosh!" Anyways.. When I found out my son had it, I was like okay so now what? Do I have to turn him into a zombie or give him meds that will have a ton of side affects and possibly get him dependent on them?! It took me a long day to realize I needed to put aside my early notion to be fair to him and learn as much about every option possible. So here I am.. trying to learn. Right now I have him taking Melatonin to help him sleep which is working really well so far. I just got some natural stuff in 3 days ago that we are trying, but so far I haven't seen much of a difference with that. It does say it takes a while sometimes to see a difference, so I am still hopeful. But I am here to learn and soak up all your knowledge All you fellow ADD friends out there.. Let me have it!!
