Answer Dear Yadu
You need to get a counseling session too. some times we dont know but there are circumstances and situations at home which can further aggravate child s hyperactivity behavior. there is no harm in checking with some good center where they treat hyper active children as they can help you out with family and personal support system too.
about the medicine start giving him saraswatarishtam 4 drops with water 1/2 tab of manasmitra vatkam twice a day. praval pishti 75 mgs twice a day. do let me know after one month.
