... if i see all the side effects... is it really all that their is for kiddies to help them? My daughter is starting on it, and with all the detail that I have read, I am just worried and confused. Is this the only medication that is on the market that will work for ADD?
Mom; Douglas is just one of many generic companies and when you fill the prescriptions you well get what your pharmacy carry. Sorry sometimes You can do to much research If you look up Advil or Tylenol you would be surprised at all the side effect on them and would not want to give them to your child. It's understanding out of the testing what percent of people really had that side effect. Just like the 2 you are comparing both of these are the same active ingredients. And someone may have complained about pain or tongue and due to the FDA even if it only happened to one of these medications the companies are required to put it in their side effects also because they are the same active ingredient even if nobody said it. The best way is to go into this open minded and see how your child benefits from the medication. Ask the Doctor and Pharmacist what are the most common side effect that you should look for and what you should do. You really have to learn to trust you doctor and the Pharmacist and use them, That is what they are there for.but a number of kids that have to take these medications are much more than people know. And if your child well benefits from these medications the sooner the better and don't worry about what the news says or some of the anti-medication parents that just let their child get worse and worse until you can't control them. Or the kids are making fun of them because of their behavior in which they have no control of.And with any luck, your child may grow out of it. But it's fantastic that you are involved with your child and want to do the best for them. but you should keep a record of what your child might be complaining of.When they start the medication so you can tell the doctor when you have to go back sometimes they can adjust the dose or give your child something for the side effects. But in the beginning, it best to keep a record of any you child says they are having. Also, there are several another thing the doctor may decide other than these 2 that may be better for your child. Try not to over think and worry about it. And make sure you always keep this somewhere that your child or anyone else does not know where you have them. Best of luck to you and your Daughter sounds like your a very good Mom. Chuck1957
