about 6months ago my very hyperactive 4yr old son was diagnosed with ADHD. the doc has put him on ridiline(not sure of spelling). Does anyone have any advice?? I tried the liguid form but my son refuses to take it no matter what i try. I don't know and a part of me wonders if he is to young for such a medication. please anyone advice will help

My son will be 5 in july he was to on ritalin. Idid not like some of the side affects or the fact he did not want to take it. after my own reserach I convinced his doc to try him on fokalin xr. Their are not as many side affects and it is a capsil that you can open and sprinkel on appelsause. My son is doing better on this hen the ritalin and he does not even know he is taking it.

my son started meds when he was four as well but it was the pill i put it in yogurt on a spoon it took a while till he got the hang of the routine but when he new it was the same thing everyday he eventually gave in and started to take it with out a fight it took a good three weeks remember these kids love routine and if its dirupted it takes them awhile to adapt to a new one especially when it comes to meds best of luck
