  • Hi, I have several children on ADHD medication... one is ODD also... I don't take mine off the meds... talk to your Dr. get the XR type that is "slow release"........this will spread the meds out in his body over the day and should balance him, these meds are not in the child's system long term, that is why you can put them on and take them off so easily some Dr. tell you that you can take them off in the summer, but for me it was not good for their social or emotional wellbeing... I would also tell you to look for an eye Dr that works with children of high needs.... you might find that some of the behaviors could be due to sight....

  • Take that child off of those horrible drugs RIGHT NOW!! Change his diet, take all the artificial crap out of it, plus take out the sugar. Take him to a good chiropractor and then start disciplining his rebellious behind. ODD=lazy parents term for not disciplining a defiant child.
