Hello
I landed here after doing a search on "concerta vs. metadate" because after changing to Metadate, we are having nothing but problems. Now my son is showing so much aggressive behavior that he is about to get kicked off the school bus.

I feel so alone with this. I know no other parents of ADHD children. I am always having to double-check my rights regarding the public school. Thank God we have a good psychologist now, though we are looking around for another psychiatrist because she is nothing but a prescription writer and there is no guidance.

So I come to post and realize I already apparently have a profile here and just had to get my password again. I guess I have been here before.

I just wanted to reach out. I do not know yet how active this forum is, but thing with my son are getting worse and worse, and I feel distraught and unable to focus on the other parts of life lately.

Saturday he got angry and broke a window and said he did it because he wanted to jump out of it. I am so scared for my little boy and not sure exactly what to do ==== every time I think we have everything covered, it seems to change. Everytime I think I have some kind of handle on what is wrong with him, it seems to change. Does anyone relate to this?

Meanwhile, there is the constant balance between accommodating him for his disorders, and giving him consequences for his misbehavior. That is the toughest thing to deal with, as even the after-school care provider director just said to me that she thinks we all use his disorder as an excuse to let him behave badly. I told her, in so many words, Oh yeah well Saturday he said he wanted to kill himself. So do you want to make him feel bad? He might not be able to control as much as we think.

It's back to the drawing board - looking for another doctor. Trying Concerta again. Does everyone have this much difficulty caring for their ADHD child?

Also if you use this forum and also know of other active forums, especially those focused on parents of ADHD children, or know where I might get support in Louisville, KY, I would REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

Thanks for listening.
