I have a 6 year old who is ADHD and has just started Adderall. I don't know if it's the medicine or not but he's been taking it 2 and a half weeks and he is so much WORSE. Can anybody shed any light or give me some hope or advice? He
screams at me constantly and calls me names. His hitting is better but His temper is unbelievable.
His doctor seems to think he needs to be on a higher dose but frankly I'm scared he might get worse. He's only on 5 mg a day. Any advice or insight? Thanks.
