ADHD and agression
An_250738 posted:
Hi, I'm new here and what I'm looking for is help. My son was diagnosed with ADHD at age 4 and started medication at age 5. He's always had some issues with impulse control and impulsive aggression, but lately this has gotten much worse. His aggression has increased, both in frequency and severity.
