Alright sweetie...here we go...I was diagnosed with an extreme case of ADHD when I was 5, I'm now 21. I've been on every med in the book and I can tell you from personal experience, they are dangerous. Most of that stuff is concentrated narcotics. Please be careful, I have been in the hospital numerous times due to various meds (the worst was due to adderall). As far as talking to your parents, I would. It's great that you responded to the meds, but everyone does b/c it is a powerful drug. Be careful, please. Go see a child pyschiatrist and let them decide.
