My DS, Stephen (9) was recently diagnosed with ADHD, and prescribed Aderall XR (20mg) It has done wonders for him, he is more organized, can find his belongings, can play cards with us, and is just more bearable (my daughter would disagree, she thinks 'the new Stephen is boring!' LOL)
The one HUGE problem we are having is decreased appetite. In the 3 weeks he's been on the meds, he has lost 4 pounds. Several times in the last week he has complained of dizziness and nausea. I'm really starting to get concerned. I have been able to get a little more food in him today....but thought you might have some tips, and does the appetite get better as time goes on?
