"My Son Takes 8 Pills a Day!"

"My son now takes two types of ADHD medications, plus six other pills to 'manage side effects.' Is this normal?"

by Larry Silver, M.D.


It is not normal. I encourage you to get a second opinion. Contact your local chapter of CHADD, and ask for a referral to an experienced doctor.
