: MY SON HAS BEEN ON ADDERALL. THIS WILL BE THE 3RD SCHOOL YR. WHEN WE FIRST STARTED HIM ON THIS I WAS REAL HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS, WE WERE TAKING 5MG A DAY SINCE THEN WE HAVE INCREASED IT TO 15MG THIS YR. I HAVE A SMALL PROBLEM WITH THIS CONCIDERING IM NOT SURE IF MY SON NEEDS TO BE ON IT ANYMORE. AT FIRST HE WAS IN THE 2ND GRADE BUT COULD ONLY DO 1ST GRADE WORK. SO AT THE END OF THE YR THEY PASSED HIM TO 3RD GRADE. WE MOVED SCHOOL SYSTEMS AND I PUT HIM BACK IN 2ND GRADE AND PUT HIM ON ADDERALL, HE BECAME A STRAIGHT A STUDENT AND LOVED SCHOOL. AND IT HAS GOTTEN BETTER SINCE THEN. MY ONLY CONCERN IS THAT IN THE SUMMER TIME HE DOES NOT TAKE HIS MEDICINE SO IF I CAN CONTROL HIM WHY CANNT THE TEACHER? IM CONSIDERING NOT PUTTING HIM ON THE MEDICINE WHEN SCHOOL STARTS.
Your son excelling so well in school is probably due to the adderal he is taking, causing you son to focus and concentrate, when he may not be abl to do this off of his medication. Outside of the classroom, you may not need as much concentration to do or focus on whatever your doing. It is possible that if you take your son off of adderal when in school, his grades may fall drastically. Before making this decision, discuss with your physican about ADD being a chronic disorder or is it a disorder that one can outgrow, so to speak and be symtom free of the disorder. your feedback please.
