I am worried because my 10 year old son has Seizures ,and is on three different medicine and they are not working.They seem to be getting worse and not better.He was on Adderall and then Concerta for awhile and then found out he was having Seizures and was taken of of
[More] that.we did try risperdole and that did not help him,just made him want to sleep a lot in School.and ended up in the emergency room when was upped by Doctor's.
Hey, I have noticed some posts of yours.You seem to have had a very terrible experience with ADD meds.Just because your one experience was horrible doesn't mean it is like that for everyone who takes these meds. I don't mean to be rude and from what I understand your experience was truly horrible and I am very sorry for that, but I have been onAdderall for quite some time now and must say that it has improved my life greatly. I get much better grades in school and my room is constantly clean;). I am not trying to cause any conflict, but instead am suggesting that instead of saying that ADD meds are terrible, maybe just giving your story and letting people knowing of the potential and letting them know that it is only potential, not guaranteed.
