ADHD drugs for 7+: Many doctors will drug a four year old, but the makers of the adhd drugs state it is not safe under 7. If you send your son to school they will probably ask you to drug him as they get $1000+ per drugged child. If you do that you can be assured that the teachers will do what they can to keep the child on drugs until after high school at which point you will have lost any real solutions.
