Brlk13 said it beautifully. I was hesitant at first as well, then realized if my son had some other condition that required meds I would not withhold that treatment from him. Like said above, if an undesirable effect occurs, stop the med. Also, if the medication is not having a positive result try another one. It is not an easy road. Best wishes.
