My 14 year old daughter ( who is ADHD, an ODD) is no longer aggressive physically. That stopped when we took her off the vyvanse. The biphention works really well for her. But is is verbally aggressive. She calls me every name in the book swears at me all the time. An i have tried every thing to get her to stop an she wont. So ive basically accepted that that is who is is right now. I dont know ehat else to do. I’d be lying if i didnt say her words didnt hurt. Being called the b word or being told to f off by my child really hurts. An my son who is 11 an us ADD is starting to get angry now. He was so laid back an easy going. I dont know if he is just testing the limits. Plus he is getting to that age where his hormones are kicking in as well. Its a lonely road sometimes. It can really make you feel isolated.
