My son is 8 and has ADHD, and has the behaviors you mentioned, and its really taking its toll on myself and husband. Well, many people actually. He argues, disagrees, says things that break my heart, cause he's not a BAD kid. He feels bad when he realizes the magnitude of what he has said or done. He gets into it with kids in the neighborhood, and I really struggle with meds too. Just started Adderall 2 weeks ago, after trying many Homeopathic approaches. I don't know how I feel yet, but will give it more time. I am making a list of meds I would like to consider if we decide to try something new. I guess to read that someone else has the behavior issues was reassuring in a way. He needs the boost for concentration though. Struggles with learning in school and we start next week. I am not a fan of the meds either but feel we need the help too. thanks for the info.View Thread
