    My son is 7 and has been on medication since 5. This is the 3rd medication we tried. He is on 9mls. I give before school at around 7 but by 130 it is wearing off and he is having trouble the last hour of school and homework is a nightmare. It's very affective when I give 2x a day. This is suppose to be a xr but its not lasting all day.

    My son is 6 years old and has been on Quillivant XR for a month now. He has been extremely moody, highly emotional and somewhat depressed not to mention major loss of appetite. He has always been popular and center of attention and now has become a "social outcast". He does pay attention a lot more and can stay seated through class. But I can not take the depression and the crying all of ... Show Full Comment

    My son has been on Quillivant XR for a bit over a month and we have been happy with it. We were doing 1 ml 1x/day and now are doing 1 ml 2x/day since we didn't see any change with once a day. His teachers have noticed a big difference as has his grandparents who care for him in the afternoons. His neurologist is hesitant with prescribing meds but we insisted on something since he was having so ... Show Full Comment

    My son is 7 and he never had hyperactivity. Now he has hyperactivity. We are working on dosing at this time but it has been frustrating. I am lowering the dose and then working my way back up.
