my son is almost 11 and getting totally impulsive so doc suggested switching too this. Any comments appreciated.
Hi, My son is Adhd and is on Vyvanse 30mg. He is 12. He was prescribe Strattera before and was not himself. He would get mad really easily, aggressive and not very happy. We had to change his meds. This med helps with concentration without the bad side affects of Strattera. The only thing is, it takes away his appetite. Especially at lunch time. I would be careful with Seroquel. I was given it when I was Depressed and had a psychoatic episode. You can friend me and ask me questions if you want. Good luck and take care!
my son has ADHD and is on Ritalin. Seroquel has not been recommended. It is a pretty new drug. I was prescribed it for depression and it knocked me off my feet. I couldn't even think on it. Pretty heavy duty stuff. is it to help your child sleep? Is your son not reacting to stimulants well? I might ask my pharmacist or his pediatrician if it's safe for children. just a thought
My son is 12 he has ADHD and an anxiety disorder he takes Adderall but couldn't sleep at night. They switched from guanfacine to Seroquel and it works wonders. The Adderall curbed his appetite during the day but giving him the Seroquel two hours before bed helped him eat before bed and he goes to sleep and sleeps through the night and he doesn't fight with me to wake up in the morning anymore.
