Camie- Putting kids on meds no matter what the reason is very hard. From a former teachers perspective... if the meds help him to feel better about himself and allow him to be attentive they are worthwhile. I taught many kids who were on ADD meds. Have you taken him to see a psychologist? If it were me, I would want a second opinion. And yes, research the meds on the internet. Sorry to write so much!

Liz- Glad to hear that you and A are getting better. This illness is a doozie. If you lived near me, I would take A and everyone else out sloshing in the water.
