I am the father of an ADHD 5 y/o boy. I myself am ADHD and I remember what it was like growing up with this. I want better for him and to be accepted. my wife and I have tried so many doctors, and methods, read so many books- none have worked and I'm at a loss. I dont know who to go to see or even talk to. Every doctor (4) we've seen says a different medication is the answer based upon a flier that we fill out in the waiting room. They all say the same thing - "it's classic, It's classic" but the meds dont work or he's so slow that he can't even tie his shoes. I need a doctor that wants to help not just fill his schedule. I will drive anywhere. I live in MI. and will go anywhere if i can make his life any better. please give me advise as to where do i go from here? who can I trust?View Thread
