    My son is now 6yrs old and Metadate is the second medication we have tried. Of the two, this one works best.

    Our 11 year old son uses this medicine with good results. He has had to have it increased over the years. We do sprinkle it over applesauce or yogurt with good results

    It has worked great but I have been super irratable in the evenings. I take 40mg in the morning and by 5 pm I feel a little groggy and grouchy. But it has been so long since I have been able to concentrate and be productive during the day. This frug has enabled me to accomplish my goals.
