My son has been on ADHD meds for about 5 years now. We've tried numerous meds, but really none that help him much. He is 12, and is very immature for his age. He also has asthma, along with high cholesterol, which he has an appointment with an endocronoligist for soon. Monday, he saw an ENT doctor about coughing all night long every night, that the asthma meds won't help. They have agreed to take his tonsils and adenoids out. My question is, can some of the ADHD symptoms come from this tonsil problem. The ENT said maybe, but that he isn't sure. He's driving me crazy at this point. I can tell him to do one thing, and he never remembers what he is supposed to do. He can't stay on task. I know that this is typical of ADHD, but like I said the meds doesn't seem to help much with him. He has been on Adderall, Metadate, Straterra, Concerta, and one other one that I can't remember the name of. He is about to be put on dexidrine as soon as the pharmacy gets it in since it had to be ordered. I don't know what to do to help him stay on task, get his grades up, or listen. Please help me. Thanks :angel:
