: My 7-yr old son has just been diagnosed with ADHD and his neurologist has suggested adderall. I am looking to find out side effects and actual effects of this medication before I decide to use this med. He has never used anything before. He is a good student now, but he is very, very hyperactive and impulsive. He does not know what he is doing half of the time.
: Please let me know of personal experiences with this medication so I can start to make a decision.Today 1/1 00 was the 1st day we gave adderall to our son,almost 7,very emotional in the eve. This is very unuasl for him. He has been on ritalin fir 2 1/2 months, wan't to try alt. med. but will not continue with adderall. He cried more tonight than he has in the past 3 years combined, we were warned of this possibility. The ritalin was working ok but seemed to make him rather combative after school.
: Thank you
