Today, Matthew met with a child psychiatrist. He definitely has ADHD. The doc was actually surprised at how many of the signs he exhibited.
So, tomorrow morning, we start Adderall. First, a half tab in the morning and one in the afternoon, then moving to a full tab after a week or so. I hate that it had to resort to meds, but he has really become a problem in school. With kindergarten coming up this fall, I want to give him the best chance he can get.
The thing that cracked me up was the unexpected generic name for Adderall from our pharmacy.
(Of course, the pharmacist probably thought we were nuts where we come in and get amphetamines, a stimulant, and Klonopin, a CNS depressant, at the same time *laugh*)
