Thanks so much for your response. I'm glad to know there's someone that understands. (This is the third ADHD child I suspect I've raised, but the other two had compensatory assets, so they were never tested by the school system for ADHD, only giftedness (at age 5) and were placed in the gifted program. I wish I knew then what I know now, but they are in their twenties now and I've encouraged them to get a diagnosis, possibly meds., etc. but they are both in very creative occupations and feel no desire to do so, but, boy were they a "challenge" to raise.

Anyhow, my 15 year-old is doing no better/ no worse behavior-wise on Strattera 40 mg. daily than on the Adderall, but he's at least back to his old sweet (not angry) self. I hope your son continues to do well on the 30 mg. Adderall XR. Perhaps that dose will end up being the answer for us as well, as I do think 40 was too high, though my son argued that it wasn't. (Actually, just plain old Dexedrine seemed to work as well as Adderall for him for years, and without the anger.)

Did you see the information regarding kids and bullying on the site? I didn't read it, but it might address some of your concerns.
