My daughter was diagnosed with ADHD and oppositional defiant disorder. She was on Trileptal, Adderall and Clonidine. I changed doctors and now she is on Ritalin and clonidine only.
I would also like to know about alternative treatments because I would like to take her off medicines. My daughter was getting increasingly worse in terms of aggression and hyperactivity but now is also extremely picky and I will fix her six meals a night if she eats only a little from each one because she is such a poor eater. How old are your kids?
My daughter is 4 years old.

i do not know the name of the meds but could find out. both children are thin(genetics) and very picky eaters (choice)- the medicationthat the boy is on has caused him to lose his desire to eat and he’s getting too thin- he looks like healmost has an eating disorder (which i guess he does in a way). my question is to those of you with adhd friends/children in your homes- does anyone have information on “trigger” foods that seem to set off your children?
i know sugar and food coloring are typically linked toadhd, but are there other
things we should watch out for? his mother and i are hoping to try to managehis adhd (and his sister’s ) by changing his diet and getting him off the medication so he has an appetite again. any opinions, suggestions or even guesses are much appreciated!
thanks! lisa g.
