    Help please! My son has taken the name brand for years and it worked great. Now he is on the generic brand. It's not working. Has anyone experienced this?

    My 6 year old son took Metadate for about a year. He was on 20mg, and it worked great except that it wore off after about 7-8 hours. So, he was fine for the school day, but our evenings were really tough. His behavior in school was really great though. The only side effect we noticed was that it really affected his appetite. He was not at all interested in eating or even drinking while the medici ... Show Full Comment

    I've been taking this drug since 3rd grade and it works wonders. I'm calm and I talk slower. The best thing I think although is that I can focus on school work and any task at hand instead of getting distracted. My parents and I are quite satisfied with this drug. Also I get a couple of the side affects but nothing that's bad or I can't handle.

    My daughter has been taking Metadata CD 30mgs for the last year. It works great. U can tell when it kicks in and when it wears off ,usually around 4:30 it's very hard for her to do homework independently.

    My 16yr old son has adhd and autism. He has been taking this drug for 5yrs. It helps him focus and concentrate better, but is no miracle drug for him. He still struggles with completing tasks. He has trouble falling asleep so I give him Melatonin @8pm and he is usually asleep @10 and sleeps all night. He has no appetite during the day. He is very thin and I wonder if it has slowed his growth. At 1 ... Show Full Comment
