: 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 ten year old son tried dexidrine but it caused him to go into hallucinations. He is presently
on Ritalin and Risperidone.. The Risperidone has given him such a huge appetite that he has
gained 12 pounds in three weeks. I am hoping the Ritalin will help with the ADD and also
curb his appetite somewhat.
