Hi Everyone,

Im new to this board. My daughter who's 6yrs old was just diagnosed with ADD/ADHD She was just started on 5mg of ridlian 3 times a day. I had to call the ped this morning to cut it down because by 4pm shes like a zombie so now we're on 1/2 a pill 2x a day. so 5mg a day in total. Its working for us.

HI, and welcome


Glad the med is working, it sounds like 5 mg 3X daily was too much.Ritalin is one of the oldest meds for ADHD

A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.
