My 7 year old started taking this 3 months ago in the afternoons because his Concerta would ware off too soon, this has made homework time possible. I was worried about adding another medication to him but it has worked great and he hasn't had any side effects from it.

My son 9 years old has been on Concerta for 5 months and within the first week he showed so much improvement on his school and homework patterns.
