My son has been diagnosed ADD for since age 6 and is now 8. At first we tried working 1/1 with school psychologist and made many action plans, rewarding him when he focused most of day, also eating good diet and vitamins fish oil and ADDED Attention. But throughout 3 years of school, it was obvious he needed more. My husband and I were so scared of starting him on meds, especially stimulants, s ... Show Full Comment

I want him to enjoy his summer and be normal so will just see what happens when school starts. If he st ... Show Full Comment

It is perfect but it has sure helped him tremendously. We give him his meds with breakfast and besid ... Show Full Comment

It seemed to really make him OCD he wanted to organize EVERYTHING. We bumped it up to 2mg the second week as instructed by our doctor and we had the same result as WorriedStepMom in her review. He was very zombie like and NOT the same child. He was very tired an ... Show Full Comment

A month later he was tired all the time, emotional, argueing,and being negative about himself. My mother always asked if he was feeling ok because his eyes looked strange. (like you can look at someone and see in their eyes they dont feel good). His colori ... Show Full Comment
