Parents of ADHD Children
My son is 6 yo and was diagnosed with ADHD combined type and ODD last year. He has been taking Intuniv since last October. It worked wonders and then slowly seemed to lose effect. He is having trouble focusing in school again. He gets very frustrated with assignments and sitting still. While he doesn’t take his aggression out on other children as often as he used to, he will rip up his work or kick chairs. His psychiatrist has recommended Metadate to be given in the morning to help him focus at school. I am really nervous because it is a stimulant, unlike Intuniv and I know nothing about it. Can anyone share their experience with Metadate?
