Hyperactivity as a product of ADHD, if it is extreme, is difficult to address with young children in non-pharmacological ways. Reducing environmental stimuli (particularly noise and movement) can help. Teaching relaxation skills (such as deep breathing and progressive muscle relaxation) is sometimes helpful, but young children often have difficulty employing such tactics. The use of a small amount of Clonidine at night is a very conventional treatment and does assist kids to get to bed and to sleep. It's worth considering. In the morning, try to administer the Concerta a bit earlier so your son receives some benefit while he is still at home.
Just thought you might want to see this. Children labeled adhd
also show symptoms of a child who doesn't have enough amino acids
in their diet. Doctors are so quick to cover up the symptoms rather than feed the brain what it needs. My daughter is adhd/odd, I have found a product called BECALMED. I'm relieved
that my child no longer has to be on addictive medications. Give
it a try becalmed.com
Does your son show any of these symptoms?
1) Cravings for grain, sugar and dairy?
3) Anger, mood swings, instant irritability, spaciness
4) inappropriate behavior(odd noises, talking loudly)
5) Poor attention span
6) Food and environmental allergies
7) Canker Sores
Most of these sound like adhd/ some odd (guess again)
What does cancer sores have to do with it?
