My son who is 4yrs old takes this and i have seen a very good side of him i had never seen. He is calmer and able to talk to me like he should, before the meds, he would not be still or be able to listen, he was just too wound up.

In high school, my mom kept on me to do my schoolwork, which was good. However, half way through college, I started failing classes not having support, so I went to the school counselor. She helped me out a bit with a schedule, but still in crunch time, halfway through a Term (quarter), I just couldn't focus for homework. She brought up ADD, so I contacted a Psychiatrist.
