Questions about side effects........
My 7 yr old daughter was put on Adderal XR about 6 weeks ago. The Dr has raised her dose from 5mg, to 10 mg and now to 15mg. With the two smaller doses the teacher or I could not really difference in her. With the 15 mg dose we both have seen the difference. Her teacher says that she is able to do her work in class and sit still. She is catching up in class and is wanting to do well. But, my difference that I am seeing is in the evening. She is having melt downs in the evenings after school and closer to bedtime. I know it is the medicine, because these melt downs are not a regular thing for her. In the last week she has had 4 melt downs. Is this normal behavior??? I hate to see her sooo upset. What are your thoughts on this? Thank you
