ODD - Anyone know about this?


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I don't think I have ever posted here I usually read and post on the Tourettes Board. But I have a question that maybe someone might know info about here. Has anyone ever heard of ODD (Oppositinal Defiant Behavior Disorder)? I have a friend with a 10yr old boy who was just diagnosed with this and they want to medicate (the meds seem to be the same as what is prescribed for ADD) She really does not want to medicate her son and would love to try a natural approach but is not sure what to do or where to start. (haven't we all been there!) Any info would be appreciated.

 

Thank You

Gina

Hiya,

 

If you put Oppositional Defiant Disorder in your search engine (i used google) you will get lots of info on it. Here is a link to one such site.

I dont know any more about the natural remedies than is already on this site. It seems to be a case of trial and error. This isnt very comforting when you are talking about children, but everybody is different and what works for one doesn't necessarily work for another.

 

Hope this is of help.
