: My 8 year old step son has just been diagnosed with ADD. The doctor prescribed Dexidrine for him. Has anyone had any experience with this medicine? What are the side effects? How affective has it been for your child?
My son has been on dexedrine for 4 yrs he is doing alot better in school however I have been doing some research on the subject since i heard about a 15 yr. old on ritalin who had a heart attack i figure they are taken for the same thing so i thought i would check it out more . he has not had any problems and so far it has helped alot. I did find an article on Masqueliers opc it is supposed to be a new non-drug, natural approach i am in the process of trying to find out more about it. it sounds good but who knows?
