i'm 15 and i have ADD, when i was younger i would dose off in classes(mainly the ones i didn't like) but i was still in the higher classes of my grade...ask your doctor what the symptoms that are common with ADD and what symptoms he has...watch out for them when he's on the medication as well as when he's not...ask him if he thinks that it helping...if he says no tell your docter that it's not helping...also if it isn't working you might want to hold off for a while with the medication
: 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??
