i have heard a few people say that coffee has worked for their child with adhd. my daughter is 9 and she takes the daytrana patch and for the first two hours she is into everything (it takes two hours to work) and has inappropriate outbursts sometimes and when she is in school it is impossible for her to do anything productive before her patch kicks in. the doc said something about giving her a small dose of something to help for those two hours but if she could drink coffee that would be so much better. her doc did say before that if she had trouble sleeping she should eat ice cream. i am wondering if this is the same. also, if i do make her coffee, how do i make it? does she need to drink it black or is sugar/creamer fine?
