[ - ] Is this true: She has been married twice. #1: "Meghan's 1st husband was a Northwestern University alumni and now a criminal lawyer Joseph J. Goldberg-Giuliano. The relationship lasted for 2 years but ended up in an annulment. In the United States, annulment is almost identical to a divorce. The difference is that divorce terminates a marriage¿the marriage existed, but it's over. It is a legal declaration that the marriage never occurred. Hence, it's hard to find any paper trails about this marriage" #2: Trevor Engelson. #3: Prince Henry. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Suicidal thoughts are on the side effect list of every stimulant, just like depression meds. I guess any time you take chemicals that affect your brain, it's a possibility. This worries me in a teen whose brain has not fully developed and is not as capable or realizing it could 'just' be a side effect of a medication and not to act on it. Other side effects are tics (common) which sounds horrible, weight loss and others. [ Reply | More ]

Of course, most people won't have the suicidal thoughts but tics, insomnia, weight loss and anxiety are very common, nearly every mom I've talked to experienced those in their child, they had to work to find the right med and the right dosage. It's a matter of how bad the adhd is in my opinion as to whether the risks are worth it. People compare it to other medical conditions and say of course you'd treat diabates or asthma if they had it but it's different. You can live with adhd, you can't live with untreated diabetes or at least not for long and you can't live without being able to breathe. ADHD is an executive function disorder, so regardless of whether you medicate or now, having strategies of organization is going to be the key to being able to function well. [ Reply | More ]

any medicine you take is filtered thru you kidneys and I believe some or all touch your liver as well...you need to be greatly concerned about how that will affect your child long term. In the last 2 yrs alone I have met two people who took medicines only to realize that had caused major kidney damage....one had to go on dialysis and then get a kidney transplant (that they were very lucky to receive, 100's of people die each day waiting for kidney) -- question everything you put in your body seriously.

I'm cautiously optimistic with the 11 yo, after all it has only been 1 day. But he said he never knew before what it felt like to feel focussed. It's a mixed bag for my 15 yo. On the one hand, she pays attention better and just generally have better executive functioning. But she is more prone to anxiety. So we're now figuring out how to deal with that. Neither one wants to be unmedicated. They both begged for years for treatment. [ Reply | More ]
