Dd2 is nearly 9 and been diagnosed with ADHD, it isn't severe but she can become violent very quickly and is 2 years behind at school because she cannot concentrate. We have been given he option of giving her Ritalin but are unsure if the side effects out way the positives. Would love to here from people who have medicated and the results.

Widdles if you post your question on the special needs: children board you're more likely to get responses from other parents of children with ADHD.
