No adhd does not cause skin picking

This is not a question, this is a comment. I was diagnosed with adhd when I was a child and when given medication i began picking my nuckles.... sometimes so bad they would bleed... It is the medication you are giving your daughter. take a look at these medications and you decide if you want to deal with the LONG TERM side effects of giving your child amphetimines.... or would it be better to just let her be her self for a while?  trust me .. these medications geven for add and adhd are no joke... they are hard core Drugs.. my advise to you is get her off that medication. otherwise you will see bad mental side ftcs years down the road.....!
