I have looked to you guys for some of the best advice ever and I need some feed back now if anyone has any.

I want to take my son off of his Adderall XR and try him son some natural medication I read about, but I am afraid it will hurt all the progress we have made so far. His problems only stemmed at school with his behavior and for the first time since he started scholl he recieved his first "O" for outstanding in conduct. His grades are still in the ditch but I know it will take time to pull them out. I guess I am afraid that thigns will go backwards and he has come so far. I am also concerned that that the one side effect he suffers from, emotional instability, will cripple him as an adult later in life. It's the emotional thing that really makes me want to try this other medication. So, I'm kinda on the fence here, any suggestions?

As a parent, and I am sure you have already thougth of this...what does his Dr. say? And is it possible to supplement with the herbal remedy. And if you can afford it, take him to an herbal nutritionist. I know it is hard. But some medications have to be administered. My 17 yr. old was just diagnosed with manic/bipolar2 and as it stands now he will be on meds the rest of his life....and I hate that, but it just is th ewa it is.
Do you think that he cold also take a mood stablizer? And what kind of emotional side effects is he having?

A counselor at my school really supports the idea of reducing time watching t.v. and involvement in video games. This seems to spike the ADD behaviors (though they can be very intensely focused on t.v. and games even with ADD). I believe there is also diet options that also can assist in taking a more natural approach to working with ADD. As said before though, it is most important to discuss with a professional...
