So DS is going to be 7 in January. He is ADHD combined (though the impulsivity gives us the most grief). He was tested before his 5th birthday (too early, I think, but that's a long story). We are waiting for another full evaluation at the hospital (excellent, multidisciplinary, full assessment) but that could take up to 6 months to get in.
He is currently on biphentin (a long acting ritalin available in Canada). I see some improvement, but not with the explosions. He's a mild kid until he gets super frustrated (mostly at school...another long story) and then he explodes (non-violent, just reallllllly loud) and returns to his quieter self.
For those with kids like this, what meds are you using? What has anyone found works better on impulsiveness?
Any info would be great.
