Taking amphetamine stimulants can be very dangerous. They can cause weight loss, stunted growth, tics, irregular heart beats, high blood pressure, and even sudden death and its a shame that you feel that drugging your children is the only solution at this time. THey are so young ! Have you tried getting them involved in sports and lots of fun activities ? Please try to be really patient and get to the bottom of why they are not behaving. I personally think ADHD is being diagnosed too often when kids are just misbehaving or having problems in their life. There is no clear cut lab or blood test which proves ADHD exists and misbehaving is NOT a mental illness or disorder . Its what kids go through as they grow up!
