MY 5 Y/O HAS ADHD AND HAS TRIED MANY MEDICATIONS THAT HAVE NOT WORKED. PROCENTRA IS EASY TO GIVE TO HER AND HAS HELPED VERY MUCH WITH HER HYPERACTIVITY.

My twin boys are 4 and started on this but it made them extremely whiney and they became very aggressive with each other. switched to another med after just 4 days.

My son started this medication his 3rd week in 1st grade. It has almost been a year now and I could not be more thankful to his doctor for suggesting it. We noticed huge improvements with his concentration and focus right away. My son was able to organize his thoughts better and tell me things, in a clearer manner than ever before. Even his teacher noticed he was behaving better at school and completing all assignments. I am now seeing a more talented side of my son I always knew was there. My only complaint for this drug is that it wears off after about 12 hours. But even so, it helps my son so much most of the day.

My son is 6 and has been using Procentra for about 2 years. It works great for school purposes, but he's very detached when he's on it and not very lively. When it starts wearing off, he gets aggressive and whiny, it's almost unbearable, and pretty embarrassing to have to explain to other parents.

First of all, YOU SHOULDN'T PUT A 4 OR 5 YEAR OLD ON ADHD MEDS!!!!!!! It's the equivalent of legal crystal meth! I can't believe parents would do that without knowing how AMPHETAMINES affects the brain, heart, and all sorts of other things! 2nd- this medicine (as well as other amphetamine STIMULANTS, works exactly as it should. It keeps you awake, and alert, but if you are not ADHD or if you don't have a sleep disorder it WILL make you irritable, fidgety, restless, pretty much everything crystal meth would do!

My child took this for a period of 3 consecutive days. Around mid-afternoon, each day he had a period where he just acted "wierd" and kind of "phased out" so I stopped giving it to him.
