Just found this forum today!!

I haven't even had a chance to lurk yet! I just wanted to say hello and that I'm here looking for help for my ds that just turned 13. He was diagnosed with ADD when he was in second grade. He's on Adderall XR, 20 mg in morning. I have a lot of concerns about his complete lack of motivation and ambition. He never seems to give more than a half-***** attempt at everything he does. I worry that he's missing out on a lot of life because he doesn't feel like doing much other than hanging out with his friends or watching tv. I'm wondering about anti-depressants and if they could be of help for him? Thanks for any help you can offer! I'm sure I will be checking this forum out a lot. I love a good forum!

Welcome to the forum.

What you might have on your hands is a mixture of being a teenager/depression/ADD. I'd say definitely at least have a talk with the doc who manages his meds, or his therapist if he has one.
