The emotional changes may be due to Straterra, please consult your prescribing doctor about any possible side effects.
Please remember that ADHD (like bipolar) has a chemical cause and is therefore treated most effectively using medication. However, medicating little ones is never easy for parents. In terms of non-medical treatment of ADHD: low carb high protein diet, supplement with omegas, ensure plenty of exercise, make use of timetables and rosters to limit forgetfullness, regular sleep wake pattern (weekends included), limit preservatives and colourants.
There are neurofeedback programmes available as well which some people have had success in treating ADHD.
One final note on medication: I can never state often enough that the benefits of the medication must outweigh the side effects; if the reverse is true, it is not the correct dose or treatment altogether.
