I have trhee children with this and myself.
Oldest, 24 on rytalin then adderall (adderrall) till college.  no problems straight A's
Second one not diagnosed till junior year put wellbutrin. then off of it.
youngest is 11 and was on adderall (adderrall) for two years and I put him a natural supplement of vitamins this year. so far so good. he's skinny and I didn't like the weight loss issues.
I know the dosages go by weight and both drugs are different. you know your child best don't be pushed by the teachers or dr.'s    Some say sugars are a factor in ADHD  or ADD i disagree.   Good luck to ya!

You mentioned that your child is seeing things that are not there.......I strongly believe that Adderall (adderrall) has that affect….. it’s a great get up and go and stay focused drug when you first take it but it doesn’t take long for an exhausting vicious cycle to begin….. It feels like it enlightens your senses to stay focused but doesn’t have the ability to shut down and allow you to rest….(deep sleep rest) so after a while the hallucinations start happening .…. and its Only when your mind can’t take the exhaustion any more that your able to finally shut down and get real sleep……then once your rested the vicious cycle starts again!  This is the best way that I can think of to explain the effect that this medication can have ….. (the effect that it had on me personally)
After reading the symptoms that your Daughter is experiencing It sounds like the medication could be having the same affects on her to…….

Plus I wanted to make sure that you know…. Adderall (adderrall) is a highly addictive medication- and its not safe to discontinued its use without discussing it with a doctor first!

Healthy wishes to you and your Daughter…
Sincerely,
Tricia
