My granddaughter who I have guardianship of was newly diagnosed with ADD and I am being told it is totally my decision to start her on any kind of meds, but I get the feeling the psych is hoping I go with it. Her biggest issues are focus and organization. She also gets moody. There is a family history of mental disorders with both her biological parents. Up until this point she showed no signs of any real problems so this is disappointing at best. I keep reading up on all of this and still don't have a lot of peace about it. We do not want to create any extra problems for her, but also want her to have a better time in school as she is very smart and motivated for the most part. I also don't want it to effect her growth and of course this is a serious side effect. Any feedback is most appreciated!
