I joined to find help on understanding ADHD, and side effects of Adderall XR. My son was diagnosed with ADHD (combined) about 3 months ago and has since been on Adderall XR 20mg (once daily) recently he has been very angry and extremely emotional, has anyone else experienced this? The medication helps him to focus during the school day but in the evening he is set off by the smallest things. HELP!!

It is because the medication is wearing off. I have ADHD and I took 10mg twice daily when I was 14-15 and It drained me. I was okay at school but when I came home was just really moody and on edge. The only problem I had at school was people trying to buy and or steal them off me so I had to keep them in the office
