The doses your child was prescribed sound awfully high for just starting the medication. They usually start out much lower, especially in a child so young. CB,R.N.
: I think you should contact your doctor asap. Starting a 6 year old child or any age individuale on 30mg a day is outrageous! Please seek another opinion.
Your Doctor has overprescribed adderall for a 6 year old child. My son is 6 and takes slow release adderall 10mg in the am and 5mg at approx. 4:30 in the afternoon. Please stop givng your child such high doses. this may cause him to have a manic episode that is not easily reversed.I urge you to contact your Pediatrician asap.
