Newly diagnosed

I have a 6 year old son was diagnosed last year and he was prescribed Strattera.  He has made amazing strides. My 5 year old son just was diagnosed yesterday and his doctor is prescribing Adderall. I have been very happy with my older sons all around adaptation to the Strattera. He eats well and has a great day everyday.  I am concerned about the Adderall.  I have not heard anything about this medication. Any input?


There’s an ADHD Medication FAQ on Adderall over on, found here: This will give you the basic information on Adderall.

As well, we have a thread on Adderall in the Medication & Treatment Reviews forum:

Good luck!
