I have a son with extreme ADHD. Traditional stimulants do not agree with him and cause unwanted side effects such as anxiety and lethargy. Our pediatric neurologist has talked a lot about Provigil which was recently approved to treat narcolepsy. It is a central nervous system stimulant which supposedly does a better job of targeting the necessary area of the brain without "spilling over" into other areas of the brain that don't need it. Has anyone out there tried this medication. If so, I would greatly appreciate any feedback. Thank you!
