“My Son Takes 8 Pills a Day!”
“Every time I take my son in for a checkup, his doctor seems to give him another pill. My son now takes two types of ADHD medications, plus six other pills to ‘manage side effects.’ Is this normal?”
It is not normal. I encourage you to get a second opinion. Contact your local chapter of CHADD, and ask for a referral to an experienced doctor.
