DS, 8, has PDD-NOS and ADHD caused by a brain abnormality (doc has said his ADHD is more due to that than the chemical issues that typically cause ADHD, so it's harder to treat). We're struggling with him right now because he's changed over the past couple of months from a sweet kid to an explosive, defiant, unhappy boy.

Hi Trish! I'm not as familiar with Strattera, but the members over on ADD/ADHD have experience with it and could probably give you some good suggestions: http://forums.ivillage.com/t5/ADD-ADHD/ct-p/iv-psaddchild. I wonder if a psychiatrist would have some suggestions for you also on other meds to try.
