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.

Comment:
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

My 12 year old daughter has been on Metadate 40 mg one per day for about 3 months and it seems to work well for her. We are still experiencing days when she isn't able to sit still or stop talking (most of the time jumping from one subject to the next,without finishing).

I am taking Metadate CD 30mg 2 a day. I have found out that this dosage works for me. It helps me stay focused throughout the day. I have tried other meds before this one and they did not work for me. Metadate is the only one that I have used that works well. I have no loss of appetite when I take it. I am more focused then ever!

Comment:
My daughter began taking 10mg July 2011 and is now on 20mg based on height/weight. I have read several reviews about the bad effects of Metadate. The drug is only good for 10-11 hrs and then it loses its effectiveness (as with all drugs). I know when Metadate is no longer working for the day and YES it is usually done with by the time my daughter gets home from school. Jekyle and Hyde, but its ... Show Full Comment
