So my DS is nearly 7 and yes he has always been and handful, not hyperactive but just never really listened or learnt properly.
The school flagged some issues and after numerous tests with numerous specialists the conclusion is inattentive ADD. I am scared because he is getting further and further behind at school.
The paediatrician wants to start him on a trial of Ritalin so I'm really interested in hearing other people's experiences with Ritalin and if the potential side effects occurred with your child???
My main concerns on the side effect list are the effects on growth. My little guy is on the small side to begin with.
Interested in both +ve and -ve stories of Ritalin.
