In Reply to: Re: My Son/ADD and Adderall posted by ckinusa on April 02, 2000 at 11:27:04:

: : My son was diagnosed with ADD about 1 1/2 wks ago. He was put on 10 mg of Adderall in the am and 10 mg at about 3 pm. The first week was heaven!!! I felt that I had my son back. After the first week I noticed that gradually he was reverting to his old ways of being impatient, stubborn and was fired from his job for an outburst he had with another co-worker. He is still somewhat better than without the Adderall. He is not as angry as he was without it.
: : My question is...does he need his medication adjusted? Is this normal? Any advise would be greatly appreciated. I want the son I had for a week back.

If the meds worked, they work. I've been on them for almost a year and my experience with them has been nothing but positive. I would also suggest having him see a therapist who has a solid background in ADHD. It is the other part of living a great life.

Good Luck!
