My 9 year old son has been prescrided 30mg of adderral per day ( Sept 09) as well as .25 mg of respiradone x2 per day (March 09) for ADHD. Since September he has had difficulty in school. He gets extremely upset at children who cheat, lie and bully other children. He has become aggressive. Last week he received a 3 day suspension from school. The school appeared to have a plan for reintegration but they did not follow it. They realized that noise was a big factor in escalating his aggression as well as gym class. He was reintegrated during a gym class and now he has another 3 day suspension. Could the meds be contributing to these behaviours and how do I get him off and HOW DO I HELP to regain his desire to attend school?

I can recommend a reputable Indian pharmacy.
Before I ordered Strattera here I ran a thorough investigation on the manufacturing practices in India in general and found out that there is death penalty for counterfeiting drugs there. I figured it would be enough to give the Strattera pills a try and I was quite satisfied with the result.
Indian Strattera and Ritalin similar meds. This is ADHD medications. And the this suppliers seem honest and reliable. On the site http://indiantrustedpills.info I've just placed my 3rd order. I hope this info will be of any help to the community.

I have tried a variety of medications for ADD; including Ritalin, Adderall, Adderall XR, Dexedrine, and Strattera. Each has benefits along with side effects. After several years medicating with central nervous system stimulants (CNS) I switched to Strattera from http://indiantrustedpills.info . I found the medication took a few weeks to take effect, and tended to cause constipation. I also found my psychological state was less effective if I became dehydrated. To counter the side effects I added All-Bran into my diet twice a week, and drank more liquids. The big benefit for myself was I could enjoy reading books again, which I could not on the CNS stimulants.

Ya, it could be. My son was on Ritalin and he acted bi-polar.
Is he in therapy at all ? Check for food allergies too. You'd be surprised who that can effect a child.
It's so hard to raise a child like that. I know.
I hope it gets easier for you all.

Why an Indian store ?? I don't get that ??
It sells the same meds as the docs do ??

I was diagnosed with ADHD in 6th grade and have taken Indian Stattera ever since. I am a college student now and its worked so well for me that I continuously make good grades. I would recommend this medicine to anyone who is having problems finding one to work.

Most definitel Yes! I had a child with the same problem of aggression after respiridal, lexapro, and adderall. All of them caused aggression in my child. Doctors denied it and it got worse over the years, in and out of mental hospitals, when I'd finally had enough. I found a doctor to wean him off and give him supplements that treated his symptoms instead. It took him about 6-8 months to completely stop the aggression after being on those meds for 3 years. He is now back to his old self with normal kid issues and no aggression.

Strattera from http://adhd-genericss.info works great. I am able to focus and am able to do more tasks at once, which my job requires. I am now able to sit down for more than 10 minutes at a time and read, write, and study for my college classes. The only thing that bothers me is that I sometimes forget to take my dose of medication. Other than this instance, I am able to function better as a person!

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/wW5CNU only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
