My son was just diagnosed at age 5. His pediatrician and I had talked about it through the years. After 4 yrs of observation, a teacher survey and parent survey he felt comfortable diagnosising my son. We are trying to get him ready for kindergarten so he is on a low dose of ritalin (5mg bid). The low dose is letting him focus more without losing all of his energy. We tried 10mg and 7.5 mg in the morning and both made him very depressed and inactive. I wouldn't want to medicate a 3yr old but I think it is good to be aware of the possibility.Our pediatrician does not like to TREAT ADHD until 5 or 6 but said he has treated as young as 3 in specific situations.
