ADD / Bedwetting
Why have I been told to rule out ADD regarding bedwetting of 11 year old? I have found nothing in any ADD articles I have read that mention bedwetting as a symptom. What are today's views on Ritalin?

Lyn, I’m not sure why, but somebody must have thought that it might be part of the problem. Ritalin® is an excellent drug when prescribed for the right patients, but it can’t take the place of parental love and discipline. Let me know if you have more questions. Good luck.
