My daughter has every sign of both odd and adhd. He docs finally said that they THINK she has ODD, and has ADHD at home but not in school yet. She is 9 and I have been dealing with this since she was 2. Last week her pedi told me that she had been in contact with her behavioral doc, and he is willing to put her on meds if we want, but he is hesitant. I think he wants to go "the no meds route" Im at my wits end with her right now, and I really think that she doesn't know how to control herself both physically and mentally She is completely hyper, and she will freak in that matter of a second. She freaked out in a bloody fit one day because the brissels on her toothbrush were bent. I mean she did the kivver on the floor and freaked out. So I finally told her doc that something needs to be done. They both agreed on meds soon, but they are hesitant because they feel she has a bit of ODD and if they treat her with meds then when she is 17 we will not know how to control her. I don't really know why they feel this way, but this is what I am figuring.... I think that if she does well on the meds, and us as her parents be lenient on her, when she does act out in a few years from now, she is going to be that toddler again freaking out and us parents not know how to deal with her then. I need some advice on this from those of you that have this situation. I don't know what to do, but I need help. I would really like to calm my daughter down a little. She is always going, her teacher says she is overly active in school, and she is so worried about everybody else that she cannot pay attention in school. He docs don't want to say she has ADHD...because its not in school yet, (well I just got an email from her teacher saying that it is in fact affecting her in school) So what do I do? Where would you go from here? What would you do in my situation?
