Just Diagnosed With ADHD (Children)
Hi, I have a 12 yo daughter that was just diagnosed with ADD. She is not hyper, but very poor attentive, organizational and unable to follow any directions unless given in a lot of detail. The first rx we tried was Adderall and it was awesome, but it aggravated a irregular heartbeat that we didn’t know she had until she was on the meds. Straterra was our next rx, since stimulants are now out of the question. Straterra did not work very well and she was on 60mg. So, her Dr. and I decided to try another, Intuive. She just took her first dose and she turned into a total zombie within 2 hours. It seems like most of these meds are geared toward ADHD. My question is this… Has anyone found a successful non-stimulant medication combination for ADD (no hyperactivity)?
