Reply To: Stimulants vs Non Stimulants


I’m so sorry that he is struggling so much. It is so hard to see them so aware of their struggles and not know what to do to help at that moment. 🙁

My son (9) does not respond well to stimulants and he needs a non stimulant and something additional to help his various symptoms of ADHD, so our psych has him on Wellbutrin. It is classified as a anti depressant but has shown to work for ADHD in some cases as well. We have had luck with it.

Best of luck to you both!
