Pediatrician 's  Response
I appreciate your concern.your child is suffering from ADHD,there are two modalities of treatment one is behaviourial therapy and other is medication.i advise you to get consultation from a psychiatist or pediatrician.You need to be patient with your child.try to channelize him to some constructive work,teach him relaxation techniques appropriate for his age,this has to be a team effort from his parents.teachers.
give him good balanced diet,avoid coffee,chocolate drinks as they contain caffeine.
hope your son will lead a normal life with your love and care.
god bless.

Hi Poornima
There are medications for the treatment of ADHD. Those are brain stimulant drugs which can be used only on the prescription of psychiatrist. So consult a Pediatric psychiatrist for the evaluation of your child and for the planning of strategies to manage your child and for the reuired medication advise.
