I HAVE A NINE YEAR OLD AUTISTIC SON. HE IS CURRENTLY ON PROZAC ELIXIR 3MLS DAILY. I THOUGHT THAT THE ATTENTION DEFICIT WITH HYPER ACTIVITY WAS JUST APART OF AUTISIM. HIS DOCTOR JUST PRESCRIBED ADDERALL TODAY. READING THE STORIES ON THIS SITE HAS GIVEN ME A LITTLE REASSURANCE. MY HUSBAND THINKS YOU CAN,T FIND A CURE IN A BOTTLE BUT READING THE SUCCESS STORIES I,M GOING TO GIVE IT A TRY. HIS BEHAVIOR HAS GOTTEN WORSE. HE WON'T SIT STILL FOR 60 SECONDS. HIS TEMPER TANTRUMS ARE GETTING WORSE DAILY. HIS TEACHER RECENTLY HURT HER BACK DURING ONE OF HIS OUTBURST. I'M PRAYING THIS WILL MAKE A SIMILAR CHANGE IN HIM. HIS BEHAVIOR IS BLOCKING IS ABILITY TO LEARN. I GET SO DEPRESSED HEARING HORROR BEHAVIOR STORIES ABOUT MY BABY EVERYDAY. I WRITE IN A WEEK TO GIVE AN ABOUT DATE KEN. : Jeffery has very bad behavoiral problems, at school he flips over desk and kicks other students, at home he hits and bites and threatens others around him. after being on ritalin for so long we decided to change over to adderall and see if it would help. His very first day on adderall was a complete change I went to pick him up from school I was totally shocked not to hear about all the bad things he had done but instead his teacher told me he had gotten the terrific behavior award.. I was so pleased i cried in the middle of the hall at school.. I think this medication was the best decision we have made for him, and we can only hope that it continues to be a blessing to us. We should all be thankful this medication is available to our children with add/adhd or any other behavioral problems.. KAY

: Dear Kay ,
: I had similar problems with my son, and adderall has been such a blessing in our lives . He is a different child now . He gets great grades in school and while I have always concidered him such a wonderful part of my life , now we can go out and have a great time and not worry about his behavior in public. Not to mention the self esteem it has given him , he able to accomplish more at school and home . Adderall was the best thing that I could have put my ADHD child on. =)
