Medication can be a journey. Not just with ADHD, but with things like depression, blood pressure, and even pain. Try to hang in there as they try things and adjust. And it’s good to hear that you’re doing counseling as well. Medication helps with some of the symptoms for some people (not everyone) but skills, tools, support, and coaching can offer great benefit too.

It’s good that you’ve been so diligent to tackle this and try to move things forward. I hope that it has payoffs for your relationships and offers a chance to improve your life overall. Diagnosis is a first step to better management, and I hope the forums here give you support along the way.

I’d also consider checking out the upcoming webinar if you can: Optimizing ADHD Medication for Better Symptom Management with Dr. William Dodson
