I totally agree with the previous poster and as far as do what the Dr. says, if something doesn't feel right, doesn't seem to be working or not the way the Dr. explained to you that it should be, your son doesn't seem to be feeling or getting any better and pretty much if you get any bad vibes, call the Dr. on it. No matter what the game plan, be totally involved, ask questions, don't hold anything back or be afraid to say, "Wait a minute, I'm not sure about this" because it's his/her job to get your son the help he needs NOW, do the research and get as much outside information as you can. My son has ADHD and ODD as well and I know it can be extremely tough and trying, BELIEVE ME. PM if you need to talk as one ADHD mom to another.
