My daughter was put on adderall to help her stay focused. She was only put on 2.5 mg as #1 she is only 5 years old and #2 she is really sensitive to all meds. She had a doctor appt. on 1/6 to see how she was doing and increase dosage if needed. The doctors offoce just called yesterday and said they had to reschedule her appt. Needless to say, the new appt is close to a month away! (I hate doctors!). Anyways my question is I do see a change in her with the meds, but not enough. Would it be safe for ME to increase her from 2.5 mg to 5 mg and tell the doctor when I go to the new appt? She only takes it once a day in the morning.
