I have taken medication 15 years ago when we found that 2 of our sons had ADD and the other ADHD but stopped shortly after i was informed of side effects and negative feed back. From watching the full documentary the web side information medication sounds like it is not that bad. Where or how do i get the right information to get the right medication to help me with the day to day frustrations. If a general doctor is not up to speed how can he recommend the right medication.
Leslie, start by going through the video’s, some of which answer the questions that you seek. There are some forums on how to seek out a doctor and that might be of help to you too.
It’s not that your doctor is not up to speed on the ADHD, you have to be a good consumer first. Doctors who are good, want to be educated. But educate yourself and your boys and that makes you a powerhouse.
