My fiance has used Daytrana. He complained that it didn't work very well for him. But everyone is different.
Has your son tried Adderall, Dexedrine, Vyvanse, Concerta, or Focalin? Those are other medications that are effective for ADHD. I take Adderall and it helps my ADD very much - i'm able to concentrate and I'm less distracted when I take it.
If your son responds well to Daytrana, then I'd say let him keep taking it. If he has negative side-effects, I'd go back to his doc and ask to try another type of stimulant.
