  • How old? Is he young and can't swallow pills or is he older and refusing to take them? More info please.

  • What kind of medication is he taking? There are patches now.. and all kinds of great medication to treat it. I have ADD and i take Adderall. why won't he take it?

  • My son has ADHD & when he was younger, we went thru the same thing, If his meds r capsules, u mite try breaking them open & sprinkling the powder in2 maybe pudding or yogurt if he likes either of those.
