son with ADD
ccmlo posted:
Just had parent/teacher conferences for my 5th grade son last night. Have been crying ever since. He was diagnosed 2 years ago. I am exhausted and today, I just want to throw my hands in the air and give up. Does anyone else get so tired they just want to quit. I need some support from mom's that understand. He takes Ritalin 10 mg LA. Going to go to the next level, 20 mg. Have never had an increase.

Does your son see a Child Psychiatrist for medication management? What Dr. did his initial evaluation ??

After 2-years, life shouldn't be this rough, did he recently start to go downhill? Has he had a recent growth spurt?

What is going on that made you cry? Is he failing school, or is his behavior getting him into trouble?

A bit more info. would be helpful, thanks !
