Is it a Mood Disorder or ADHD in Disguise?

Several weeks ago we went to Munchkins new psychiatrist. They suggested we take a TOVA test that measures the degree of attention variant. When it came back she was 3 degrees below. He suggested a stimulant, which I was not in love with the idea. We did try it for a week, against my gut, and her side affects were so bad we discontinued. To be honest I was relieved. Our goal is to minimize our needs for medication, not increase them.
