    8 year old had a lot of temper tantrums that would rage and last hours. This has definitely made them disappear and when I don't give it to her for one day she goes back to raging temper tantrums. I believe that it has helped. We tried other drugs that are stimulant driven and they did not work. This has been the only one that has worked. Her side effect is sleepiness at 5pm and sometimes ... Show Full Comment

    My 6 yr old son has been on this medication for just over a year. He takes this twice a day in conjunction with Strattera. We have seen a huge difference in his attitude, behavior and outbursts. Def worth trying esp if stimulants have failed as they did with our son.
