Hi I am a mom of a 9 year old boy who is ADHD with anxiety. I am trying to find out if there is an oral medication he can take that is non stimulant. He has been on many meds that are stimulants and is allergic to all. Currently he is on clonidine patch which makes him very sleepy. He will not swallow or crush or take anything mixed in his food. This just creates more anger and anxiety.

Thanks
