My sixteen year old has been on this for several years. It has been a God-send. She had been having severe rages and when we switched to metadate they decreased considerably. She is up to 70 mg of extended release each motning. Her rages seem to be returning even though we increased to 70 but we're trying some guanfacine in the afternoons now.

Took it for about a year. Mood disturbances, depression, loss of appetite , headaches, stomach aches. Aggitation when increased dose. Not a lot of help for ADHD symptoms.

Even when you eat you consume very small amounts due, so do not fear you will over eat.
