: I have been told by an acquaitance that their son is taking Effexor to treat his Adhd. We are considering it as a way to treat our son. We will not use Ritalin with him, and we are at the point that we have to do something. Has anyone heard of this treatment, and if so, how well does it work. Are there any side effects?
I have not ever heard of effexor being used for ADHD. If Ritalin is not an option there is a new medication called Adderall that most kids do not have to take to school. It has been a life saver for our family.
