> My daughter, 4 and a half, started adderall 3 weeks ago with increasing doses. We were to go to the highest dose this week, 15mg. I tried it one day and said no way... she was dazed for a couple of hours and sat in my lap with her stuffed animals for half an hour, until it started to wind down. She's now at 5mg morning and afternoon each. She's doing very well and her ADHD is minimized. She's had most of the side effects...dry mouth, loss of appetite, upset stomach, diarrhea, a little harder to go to sleep at night.

My 7 year old is on adderoll 10mg. You can really tell
if his mom does not give him his medication. He's really
irritable and can't stand still. When he takes his medicine
he does very well in school. They had to up him from 5mg.
to 10. He takes 1 tablet in the morning. He doesn't take
any the rest of the day. I feel that the increase has
helped him tremendously. For him this is a good drug. He
is a totally different person.
