My son is 9 years old and has been struggling with ADD
and sensory issues since he was diagnosed at 3 years old.
He is currently on ritalin 5mgs daily, concerta 44mgs (27mg +18mg) daily, intuniv 2mgs daily, prozac 30mgs daily, strattera 40mgs daily, and singulair for his asthma. He is already attending occupational therapy for his sensory integration issues.
His appetite has all but disappeared. He used to eat so well. He complains often of headaches and upset stomach.
We are so frustrated at this point and I really don't know where to turn. A pediatric psychiatrist ordered his medicines.
This cocktail does allow him to sit in his chair at school with some degree of concentration but his focus is not consistent.
I was wondering if we should see a holistic M.D..
However, if his focus disimproves he will be asked to leave his current school which he loves and has his "few" friends.
Both my husband and I are so upset now. He is an Internist but doesn't know where to turn either.
We would so appreciate some guidance.
