Reply To: Problem getting meds for 8 year old


So, I’m having an impossible time finding another psychiatrist in my area, let alone a “good” one specializing in ADHD, so tomorrow I’m going to call the same psychiatrist back with some new information and ask her to administer the Vanderbilt scales. There was some stuff I couldn’t think to tell her at the time, like social challenges in school and sports, and careless mistakes in schoolwork.

I just hope his teacher has the aquity to notice his issues in class, with 20 other kids probably doing the same thing. We have GOT to get this kid on meds, or else our whole family is going to crash and burn. Wish me luck!
