In Reply to: Re: I Need information about Adderall.. posted by Penny on July 11, 2000 at 17:15:18:

: : I have just recently been told that my son who is almost 8 has ADD. We went to the docters and they suggested Adderall, which we started yesterday 1/4 pill and today 1/2 pill. My problem and confusion comes with many unanswered questions..please read my short story and email me with any answers you might have(negative/positive). My son and I just made a huge move to NY from Dallas, a divorce and many miles fro his dad. My son seems to have the "behavior's" associated with ADD. but on the other hand he is on the honor role and loves his schoolwork. I am feeling very guilty, that i just said YES to the medicine without doing more research(which i have done alot). I would just like some feedback..someone out-there I could discuss this with. Am I making the wrong decision??
: : Thanks..

: If your son has been correctly diagnosed, the fact that he makes honor roll at 8 years doesn't necessarily containdicate ADD. My daughter did not begin to have difficulty in school until 5th and 6th grade- when the content becomes more rigorous. Since she is bright, she "hid" her symptoms through out most of elememtary school. She is doing better on adderal now. Good Luck!
