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:
I was put on Metadate about a year ago 20mg 2 times a day. It helps me focus on what i need to do such as my school work. I have seen a difference in getting things I need to get done done. I only take one a day because I do not like the way two of them make me feel. I have lost a lot of weight because of this drug. I would say that is one of the biggest down falls about this drug. I have no appet ... Show Full Comment

This paticular drug has worked the best for both my kids, one having ADD and one being ADHD with autism. I know its otherwise known as ritalin, but metadate CD releases in the brain different then Ritalin without near as many side effects. I have been a very happy parent with this drug, it has gotton my son into the gifted program at school, to help him focus, and concentrate easier, he is very sm ... Show Full Comment
