I recently took my son to a neurologist and he said that my son had autism with ADHD. He put him on medicine that made him go nuts. I stopped it after consulting with the pediatrician. Now I went back to the neurologist and he put him on a different medicine. I was wondering if anyone can tell me if they have been through this and what they did. Also is anyone from New York area and do you have a good neurologist? Thanks everyone
My son was just diagnosed with ADHD and he might have Asperger's Syndrome as well. We are still in the process of getting him diagnosed with that. My son also just started his medicine and I did not like the side effects at all so we are going back to the doctor on Monday for a different medicine.

"Why dope your kid if all they need is a change in diet?"
Most moms have tried everything before putting their child on medicine. I know I sure did. We have done the diet change, and it did not work. Just because your child has a food sensitivity doesn't mean every child who is diagnosed with ADHD was wrongly diagnosed. And BTW, I don't "dope" my son, I give him medicine that can help him to control his impulsive behavior so he will not get hurt again.
