    Medication is individual from child to child - - so what may work well for one, may be a disaster for the next.

    I am sorry about your son! I truly hope that the professionals at the Hospital will be able to sort out his medication and help him to feel better.

    Once home, you need to find a really, really, good, smart Child Psychiatrist to keep track of your son's medication, mood, behaviors etc....

    Did a Psychiatrist evaluate your son for ADHD?
