My daughter is 5 1/2. Since she was born she has been full of energy and not really satisfied with any one thing. She was just diagnosed with adhd. Her doctor started her on 10 mg Adderall XR. She started on them Thursday Morning and I was in shock at the difference it made. Friday she was awesome. The little things that I knew she could do all along she was doing. She turned into the sweetest child ever, manners and all. She has always loved to color but became a little obessed with it. All she wanted to do was some sort of art activity. I cried both nights because she was now this child that I knew she always was but couldn't control herself to be. Then Saturday and Sunday it was completely different. You wouldn't even know she was on anything. Is this normal to get used to a med. so fast. I just called her daycare and they said the same thing. Do their bodies get used to meds so fast? like 2 days and it needs to be uped? I have called her Ped. and am waiting for them to call me back. Any advice as long as its kind is welcome!
