My son is only on meds for ADHD. Because he is getting older and bigger, it is very hard to deal with him during a meltdown. Summer is hard for him because he gets bored which causes a meltdown. School has only been out 3 weeks and he has had 7 episodes! The worst one 3 days ago sent us to ER because he put his fist thru his bedroom window. We have set up a meeting with all his professionals next week to discuss putting him on something to help control his anger and meltdowns. Has any of you had to put your child on meds to help calm him down?? I am worried and scared to take this step but dont know what else to do. Anyinput would help! ThanksAnswer Question
I've never has to put my son on meds. But under the circumstances, for his safety, I think you doing the right thing. Good luck, Momma.
