I have a 5 yr old girl and after 2 yrs of her preschool complaining about her behavior i finally got my daughter into a mental health place and she was just diagnosed with ADHD, They havent put her on meds yet but we dicussing it. they want her on Rittilin. I dont know if that is good or if she should go on something else any tips?

Also this is my first child and not sure best ways to handle my daughters ADHD and dont know what to expect from her school when she starts Kindergarten next week. I would appreciate any advice u guys can give. I'm just nervous about this condition she has and how she will do in school and how her school whill handle it ect. =

Hi I read what you wrote about your daughter having adhd. I just found out that my 5 year daughter has it too i was wondering did you go into preterm labor with your daughter? I did from 5 months and the nurses gave me alot of the terb shot to stop the contractions i was trying to figure out if that could of led to this.

Thunderdragon: We started my son on Methylphenidate (generic of Ritalin) when he was 5. We tried only using behavior modification at first, no sugar, etc. with no progress. The Ritalin made a huge difference in both his ability to focus and it helped his behavior quite a bit (tantrums reduced and not as severe). The schools have been great about giving him his medication and staying in touch with any problems. His appetite has gone down, so we have to give him a lot of healthy snacks. It also has made it hard to sleep at night, but we give him the natural supplement Melatonin (with dr. approval) and it has helped a lot as well.
