DD who is 9 was just diagnosed with ADHD and also dyspraxia. For the ADHD the doctor wants to put her on a med called Tenex. Everything that I read says it was mainly created for people with high blood pressure therefore lowering a person's blood pressure. Worried that my very tiny child will be taking this. Anyone heard of it?View Thread
Wow! Great site! Thank you. That was actually better than the info that I go from my doctor. Just keep worrying that a med to lower her blood pressure is a strange concept. Scary to think that lowering it is actually safe for a child that loves to run around outside and play. Still very torn View Thread
