: Jeffery has very bad behavoiral problems, at school he flips over desk and kicks other students, at home he hits and bites and threatens others around him. after being on ritalin for so long we decided to change over to adderall and see if it would help. His very first day on adderall was a complete change I went to pick him up from school I was totally shocked not to hear about all the bad things he had done but instead his teacher told me he had gotten the terrific behavior award.. I was so pleased i cried in the middle of the hall at school.. I think this medication was the best decision we have made for him, and we can only hope that it continues to be a blessing to us. We should all be thankful this medication is available to our children with add/adhd or any other behavioral problems.. KAY
I am glad to learn that someone is having success with adderall. My 9 year old son has adhd and our doctor just recommended adderall. I am not sold on the idea to use medication for him, but I have tried all other areas, nutrition, homeopathic, behavior modification plans etc.. anyone else out there having success with adderall?
