    My 7 year old son has been taking 6ml for a month now and this drug when it wears off is a nightmare. He has such bad insomnia. He doesn't sleep for very long if at all. He doesn't eat during the day he eats all night long this medicine started out great but now all the side effects are not worth it.

    My 7 year old started Quillivant XR several months ago, and we could not be more pleased! Comparing his spelling tests from before he started, to his spelling tests now...the difference is night and day! He just got his report card, and he has improved in all areas! There were two times we forgot to give him his meds, and one of those days was a spelling test day....needless to say, you could a ... Show Full Comment

    This medicine is a life saver to my 8 year old son. Not only has his general attitude improved, his academics have increased and his teachers comment about his better grades and ability to maintain thought and complete a task without being out of his seat. The times he has missed a dosed have been horrible. It shows me the medicine is absolutely necessary- life is already difficult, why make it ... Show Full Comment

    My son is 11 and has been on this med for 18 months. This is the first drug we tried after diagnosis of ADD and it's been a perfect fit for him. He gets about 10 hours of effectiveness each day. He's fine at school but it's worn off by the time we get through dinner and homework. We do notice irritability if he skips a day.

    My 9 yr old started this drug 7 months ago. Normal starting dose of any child on ritalin is 20mg. Which would equal 4ml of Quillivant XR. We started at 2.5 ml and worked our way up to 5 within the last 7 months. 5ml, is 20 mg of extended release ritalin. Thise complaining about not seeing results who are at less than 5ml are not even at the normal starting dose yet! Get permission to go up a 1/2 o ... Show Full Comment
