I started with 18mg and after the first box I was given 25mg, my grades improved a little and when I noticed I was already paying attention to what the teacher said.

I have been taking this medication for about 6 months, and the only thing I notice different is change in my appetite. When I was bumped up to 80 mg I noticed I was getting more frequent headaches and nausea. And on the days I didn't take it or periods of days, I didn't notice a difference in my concentration :(

Comment:
Initially showed positive signs but soon turned my daughter into an aggressive nightmare to deal with. She became a person I didn't know. I should have never allowed her to take this drug.
