Tried this on our 4 year old and it made him nap instantly. After reducing dose per doc's orders he continued to be lethargic, unresponsive, basically so sedated tickling would not make him laugh. He would not eat and lost 7lbs in 2weeks which was awful being he was already in the 25th percentile and tiny.

this is the best medicine my 13 year old has ever taken. He is a slow metabolizer and can only take short acting medicines. This is great with the only side effect sleepiness when it wears off. It is the best Dexedrine available. The BArr and Teva generics are horrendous. The Dex Spansule was great but lasted too long.

MY 5 Y/O HAS ADHD AND HAS TRIED MANY MEDICATIONS THAT HAVE NOT WORKED. PROCENTRA IS EASY TO GIVE TO HER AND HAS HELPED VERY MUCH WITH HER HYPERACTIVITY.
