My 7 year old daughter was just diagnosed with Inattentative ADD today. Poor thing is very imaganitive, caring and cannot seem to focus at all. Her schoolwork is suffering and I really want her to pass second grade. The doctor prescribed Adderall 5 mg to start. I am scared to death to medicate her. However, the doctor said I could tutor her, and have her do schoolwork 24/7 and she would just get more and more frustrated because of the disability. I do not want her to become more discouraged or depressed. I would really appreciate any advise or past experiences with this medication. I plan on starting her on it on Saturday so I can watch her closely.
Thank you so much
