THE OTHER BOY IS 4YRS OLD AND HE TAKES 20MGS OF ADDERALL BUT HES ALSO A DEVOLPE DELAY PLUS MENTAL RETARDED SO DO YOU THINK THAT HE SHOULD BE ON THAT KIND OF MEDS? WELL THINKS FOR LETTING ME WRITE.
Tina a doctor put my little boy on clonodine because he was having trouble sleeping at night. Other doctors have told me that the medication was for adults NOT children. They said it could not only harm the child but kill him. I don't mean to scare you but I wanted you to know. Please do research on any medications that you give to your children. Don't take any chances.
