Hi. I went that route for just adhd but quickly realized it was too much and that my pediatrician could handle. I have taken son to psy for behavior counseling. For rx Focalin just to the pediatrician. My son is 10 and as he's maturing tantrums are less and he's better in sch. When he was younger I thought ODD as well but thank goodness that seems to be gone. Make sure diet is well because friends and I say that has a lot to do
with it. Rx really is the best route for you and him. Many of us don't like the option but it does help esp. while in school. Good luck!

Hi hopefully your son doesnt have it my seven year has adhd and his doctor tested him the school keep yelling me he might not have it and it was him dealing with me and his dad spliting up which yes it might have some to do with it but me and his dad spilt when he was only 2 so who really knows the school likes to put more into what is really wrong I would get your son tested by a doctor and they will put him on meds I hated the idea at first but now hes more calm and doing alot better in school I heard alot about the meds but talking to the doctor I realize now it was the best thing for him good luck!!!
