Treating My Grandson’s ADHD With CBD Oil
Raising a child with both ADHD and Oppositional Defiance Disorder can be quite a task. Not only are they 100% wired and it constant motion they are frequently very defiant as well.
After meeting with numerous therapists with little to no results we met with a Child Psychiatrist who prescribed Vyvanse and Abilify which then caused a multitude of other problems. Loss of appetite, consistent nausea and sleeplessness just to name a few.
Looking at this situation I decided to take matters into my own hands and started give him CBD Oil and weaning him from the Abilify and Vyvanse over a two month period of time.
We noticed a dramatic difference in his overall attitude as well as his appetite returning and once again sleeping well. A much more calm, non-defiant and well- adjusted young man had emerged with much less frequent to finally no outbursts within just a couple of weeks.
I am certainly not suggesting that anyone stop taking any type of medication without first consulting with their doctor, this is just what transpired in my own family and we are thankful for the wonderful results.
Is CBD right for you or one of your family members? That is a question you need to discuss with your doctor prior to making this type of decision.
Like any other mental health disorder, coping with ADHD is not easy. If you are struggling to deal with the symptoms of ADHD, don’t hesitate to seek medical help.
