my oldest son is seven. when he was six and in the first grade, his teacher was concerned about his behavior (we was also concerned) so i took him to the pedi and she had us fill out some questionaires and had us come back for an hour long visit. he was diagnosed with ADD. he takes strattera 10 mg and 18 mg on alternating days. he is doing very well in school BUT

he absolutely refuses to wear a shirt with the thick sticky plastic. i mean he will cry and cry and fuss about it until i realize there is no sense in arguing over a shirt. i mean a bunch of the shirts of cute but i am wondering if it could be a side effect of the add

Maybe he's just severely sensitive.
My nephew is 7 and add and dd is 9 and adhd plus odd and I've never heard of this issue. Doesn't mean its not possible though.
But you're right, there's probably no point in arguing over a t shirt :/

He could be extra sensitive to that stuff.   Have you tried washing them a few times to thin out the design?  I would just put him in cute non licensed shirts for now.

I don't like shirts like that either. They are very uncomfortable to me.

My oldest son has ADD and he loves soft blankets, but hates shirts that are too tight, or feel different than Cotten.

Sensory processing disorder.

Btw, I don't think your regular Pediatrition is qualified to diagnose add.
Try a developmental ped or a psychologist and they might be able to help you with what is going on.

She is more than qualified. It takes over a month for a develop. Ped appoin.. he also attends counseling for over sensitivity issues

Yeah he is addicted to soft things. Blankets, worn cotton shirts and stuff like that

DS has shirts like that he liked and then just wouldn't wear anymore. I'm not an expert but it sounds more coincidental to the ADD than causal. Have you asked his pedi?
