My 6yr old daughter has been taking this medication for 1wk for her ADHD. If she isn't asleep she's crying. And screaming for hours. She was on a stimulant(Vyvanse) her therapist said Tenex would work better due to her severity of ADHD she was prescribed 1mg in the am and 1mg in the afternoon. After this past week she will NOT be getting another dose of Tenex !
