My son was on concerta for 2 years but would not gain weight, the doctor put him onStrattera just with the first pill he was very sleepy and could not stay awake. I don't want him on this medicine i have read to many bad things about it and hardly any good. Some of my friends kids take Vyvanse and sat bthere kids eat on it. Is it possible that it would not curb my sons appitite like concerta?
Suzanne is right, BUT you have to remember that all of those listed side effects are actually POSSIBLE KNOWN side effects, they may or may not affect soemone taking the medication. It might give him his appetite back, but then again, it might surpress it even more. Hope this helps.
We tried everything under the sun for my then 8yr old. He is now 12 and taking vyvanse. Its the only drug so far that has not taking his appitite, personality or drive away. I can't say how wonderful this has been for my son. On the other hand every child is different. Concerta and Aderall were the worse for my son. The daytrona patch was better but still wouldnt eat and had no personality. Vyvanse is wonderful.
