Re: Adderall on Weekends?
I have heard alot of people don't medicate their children on weekends/or other times when not in school..For us we do medicate-my son was extremely ADHHHD and for self-esteem purposes we do, he would constantly be in trouble for this or that with us, friends, relatives...he also notices a big difference when he is not on meds, he says he can feel himself out of control..we often thought he was just relying on the meds but he isn't a "bad" kid he would just do dangerous things--impulsively..anyway--when we switched to ADDERALL XR 10mg.. my son for the first 2-3 days had a bad belly ache, and from asking questions to other posters on this board and his ped... I kinda got that this is a side effect from Adderall and it takes a few days to get over it... I would maybe question if his body is just not "adusting to the med" why he is sick??
Good luck very hard decision!!!
