My son was put on Concerta at age 7. It has always worked quite well for him. I knew within hours of his taking the medicine that it was working! He takes Concerta in the AM then Clonidine in the PM to help him sleep. He is now 16 and still does quite well on this medication. We have not had to increase the dosage but maybe once in all this time.
My son is 12 now and is on Vyvanse. That works well for his Adhd except it takes his appetite away. The pediatrician gave me another pill for him to take for appetite. He was on Strattera but that cause him to be pissed off and angry. Good luck and take care I know how worrysome it can get. Keep in touch.
