I have a six year old step son who was just diagnosed with ADHD yesterday. His doctor told me that he felt Ritalin would be my best bet. My husband and I have custody of him, so we make most of the medical decisions. My step son's mother didn't want him on Ritalin. She heard all these bad things about it. She felt he should have been put on Adderall. I don't know much about either medication. I was just following the advice of the doctor. I would like to know what the actual difference is between the two medications.
