Dear desperate mum,
Ritalin has helped many children, however it is not the only medication available; Concerta and Stratera are also often recommended as they tend to have fewer side effects. Your GP or Paediatrician will be in a better position to refer you to a specialist in your area. Working together with a dietician may also be beneficial as some foods can have a large impact on behaviour.
