My 7 year old daughter (will be 8 next month) was on Adderall, but she was so emotional and had such extreme facial tics we asked the doctor to switch her medication. She has been on Metadate CD for three weeks now, and because she is still having trouble focusing after lunchtime during school the doctor keeps 'upping' her dosage. We are now at 60 mg. per day. I am wondering if this is even a normal dosage. Most people writing reviews are saying their child is on 10 to 20 mg. I am thinking of getting a second opinion.
