    My son was diagnosed with ADHD in 3rd grade. We tried Straterra, Vyvance, Intuniv, and Focalin XR. All had negative side affects. Daytranna works great. He has all A's in school. I like the ability to only have to use it when needed. One big downside is the cost. With Atena insurance, we still pay over $300 per month. My son also had a decreased appetite on Daytrana. So, I had him eat ... Show Full Comment

    Love love love this medicine. When I was diagnosed in elementary school, I tried Vyvanse (made me hate everyone and everything), stratera, focalin, and maybe one other, but my hatred/inability to take pills as a child and the severe mood changes that were a common side effect ruled out these options. When I began Daytrana, my mother and I immediately loved that I could take it off at any time, all ... Show Full Comment

    I was prescribed Daytrana for 5 years ago and have been taking it since. I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was in 3rd grade and my grades have always been up and down. I am 19 now, and I can honestly say it has helped me get through college level courses in highschool and college. I have tried stattera, adderall, and ritilan and find that this is the best ADHD drug for me. I love that I can take it ... Show Full Comment

    I am 36 years old and have been using Daytrana for around 8 years. I didn't start medication for ADHD until I was 20 and failing out of college without my parents around to help me study. Ritalin, then Adderall and concerta were life changing in the fact that I was finally able to understand and actually learn things in a classroom setting. However, the pills were easy to abuse and very har ... Show Full Comment

    I'm a senior in high school and I have been taking daytrana since around 7th grade. It works so well!! I'm always focused in class, I get my homework done, and I can study for long periods of time!! My grades have defiantly benefited! But while using this medication, I stopes being myself. I can't talk to friends in class and it's very difficult to make friends. That has really hur ... Show Full Comment
