7 Yr.old son w/ADHD&ODD

Posted by Diane S. on August 21, 1998, at 14:32:18

My 7 yr.old was diagnosed almost 2 yrs. ago.Since then he's been on Ritalin, BuSpar,Tofranil& Adderall. I just took him off of everthing except Tofranil(35mg at 7pm)Today he's been ok-only mild anger & rage. When he was on the Adderall,he had alot of anger,followed by uncontrollabe crying.I'm seriosly thinking about going the enzyme route-I've heard results are excellent,but the absorption time takes 6 to 8 weeks.School starts in 2 weeks.I don't know if he can handle the pressure w/o his meds.I got him on the "504 Plan" at school at the end of the year.Hoping this helps him adjust better to 2nd grade. I can handle his 'episodes'(I've worked with neurologially/perceptually impared,ADHD,autistic,EMR,&ED kids for 15 years.)The teachers in a "REGULAR " classroom today don't have the time or patience to deal w/ kids of certain needs-this makes my work that much harder.Any input/suggestions?THANKS!Diane
