Yes. Starting adolescents at 18 mg. for one week is the standard recomendation if they've never been on a stimulant before. It most likely would not be too effective at controling your symptoms but the side effects of these drugs - shaking, loss of appetite, inability to sleep, racing heart beat - can be frightening at first and it's best to make sure that you have no sensitivities to it.
