    My son was diagnosed in the first grade, we had tried several different medications b/4 this one. What a difference this medication made - its been great - no side effects etc. He continues on the medication and is now in 11th grade!

    When taking this drug I experience terrible mood swings as it starts to wear off. Concentration is even harder during that time. I become irritable and sometimes sleepy while taking this medication.

    i've had add since first grade, and... it pretty much sucks to try and concentrate on one thing for too long. like, my mind wanders so much, right? i take 30 mg of metadate and i can just... go. y'know? like, it's amazing. i've gotten all sorts of medicine thrown at me, ritalin, aderal, concerta... none of it's worked as well as metadate cd has. great stuff.

    My daughter takes this medication. Easy to use, effective, minimal side affects - and occured when first starting treatment. She now able to focus clearly in school, pay attention, and seems happier and more adjusted to kids her age.
