[QUOTE=mln2603]I believe that unless you actually have gone through this ordeal with your child, you won't & can't fully understand what is going on here and can't comprehend the idea that the behavior is not the fault of the child.[/QUOTE]

I agree, medications are perfectly capable of causing mood problems, more so in some than others! Constant crying spells, aggressiveness and fatigue finally convinced my brother-in-law to take my nephew off first Adderall than Strattera.

He's back to his old sweet personality. Sometimes all a kid needs is a tutor for schoolwork or some incentives/stimulation to make it more fun. Getting into a sport also burns up the extra energy; he skateboards regularly now with brother and dad; also involved in basketball.

It's for sure it was the medication all along, because now he is more sweet since getting off it.

Blaming a child who is reacting to psychoactive, brain altering meds is mis-placed denial of what these drugs, (which by the way are being given without any measures avalible of what proper neurotransmitter levels are in the brain), can mess with in a child's brain.
