attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) - My son is going to be 10 and has been on meds for?

A: What are the names of the medicines your son used for sleep? Sometimes medicine combinations can be used together, even though they are not recommended, provided it is closely monitored. Maybe you should talk to your doctor about your concerns. See http://www.drugs.com/enc/sleeping-difficulty.html You might want to ask your doctor if he could try Daytrana instead of Vyvanse. It is a skin patch form of ADHD medication that we have used very successfully with our 12yo son. It is great because you can remove it whenever YOU want to stop the flow of meds to try to reduce interference with sleep. He removes it right after school unless he has an important activity in the evening when he needs full focus (ball game, etc.). The effects linger long enough to get through homework and/or activities,...

attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) - What is the problem with Psycristists in dianosing

A: I''m gonna remain on-topic and attempt to answer what seems to be a question about adult an ADHD diagnosis.

This turned out to be ADHD. This was in no way a big stamp on a piece of paper certifying me of an ailment with an immediate trip to the pharmacy for a med that was being pushed. Instead, there was a trip to another psychiatrist for a second ''quality...
