: My son, who is 8, has been on adderall for about 3 years. We recently began to notice an increase in physical tics. These tics can be facial(blinking, grimacing etc) or sounds (humming, clicking). Has anyone experienced this as a side effect of taking adderall. My son is taking 15 mg a day.
I have 2 children one 10 and the other 9 both children are ADHD. My 10yr old has was dignosed at the age of 4 and my 9 yr old 2 yrs ago. We started out on ritalin with my daughter and then went to the adderall. When my son was dignosed he also was prescibed adderall. He is currently taking 20mgs early morning and 10mgs at noon. I have not noticed any tics and so far have been very pleased with the drug.
