Discussions that mention adderall

ADD / ADHD board

She is almost 6.She never pulled her hair until she started taking stimulants.She would twirl her hair and form knots.Then she would pull the knots out.She formed the bald spot in 2 days.I found the hair in her pockets and in her bedroom.She would hide it.I know it is from the meds.It stopped after she stopped concerta but she needed something for her adhd so we tried adderall and she started back doing it.Now we are trying strattera and I catch her twirling sometimes.She can stop now.I think it is anxiety and maybe it will get better once strattera starts working.She's only been on it for 3 weeks and I hear it takes 6 weeks or longer to fully work.Thanks,Brenda
