Well with everything going on with my dd yesterday I totally forgot about my DS. I did take him to the doctor and now we are waiting for blood test to come back and for the teachers to fill out these crazy papers. Not like the doctor can't read and see that on the test that the schools did they found ad/HD. But what ever my poor DS has never had blood work done since he was a baby. He has been pretty healthy and all so it's never been necessary. Well he was in tears and we walked him through the blood taking stuff before they actually did it.. He did great after that with moms help of course.

OK, so what is the blood work for? Are they testing for anything else that could mimic ADHD?


Remember, that each child reacts differently to meds. And that sometimes the first med you try is not the right one for that child. Good luck with your son!

Well even armed with all of his test they wanted to check for infection and his thyroids. Not sure what is up with that seeing dd was tested for ad.hd an put on the medications then and she has been far sicker then my son.


I was a little shocked that they wanted blood test but what ever....
