This is my first time posting, too, so we’re both beginners! I have a child with ADHD and we had him on meds for a while. I finally realized that the meds (we tried several) were increasing his behavior problems to the point where it was unbearable. I discovered this purely by accident when my husband asked if we could take a break one day from the meds and we noticed a slight change. You may want to investigate whether the meds are playing a role in increasing the behavior problems.
