Adderall should not be your only answer for a straight A student with behavior problems. If he has good grades then try to give him something like dexedrine. I was diagnosed with ADHD in 6th grade and I took ritalin for seven years. Then my doctors switched me to adderall due to the LONG TERM side effects that ritalin had on me(i.e.-Anorexia and depression). After spending three months on adderall...dealig with my horrible insomnia, ticks, tremors, severe loss of appetite and other fun side effects---I have decided that Aderall is not a good medicine for some ADHD children, rather it can act as a poisin in some patient's bodies. After finding out that the main ingredients that are used in adderall are the same substances that make up cocaine, I was hardly surprised! I am not saying that adderall is bad for all people, but if you can avoid giving this substance to your child, I would advise another mediation, such as:dexedrine! Although I hate having to take any medication for my ADHD, dex is definitely the best, and trust me I have been through them all!
No matter what you give your child do not give them too much and only give it to them when they HAVE to have it , otherwise they may become addicted or dependent on it to feel mormal. After nine years of speed,I HATE having to be dependent on speed to function like other people, and I would not wish this disorder or medication on anyone. I hope this info is helpful!
Have a nice day! {}
