As always, thanks for your help. Love to have this board for a resource. My 7 year old son has been on 10mg of Adderall XR since August, 2009. Recently the doctor added a 5mg "booster" dose to be give in the afternoon because he was having a hard time getting through the afternoon at school. It has made a huge difference both in school and at home...he comes home and happily do his homework, ride his bike, etc. However, the one negative side effect that he has now is that he chews on his shirt...on the neck or the sleeves. Some days he comes home and his shirt is completely saturated right at the neck. I'm sure it's because of the added medicine...any advice? I will mention it to his doc when I see her next week, but I just wanted to know if any of you had experienced similar things and how you handled it.
