My son has tried it. He started on a low dose and moved up to almost the max dose before I told them I wanted to try something else. I didn't see any bad side effects on my son, but it just didn't help him focus that well and he still bounced off the walls along with losing his appetite. A lot of the ADHD meds will keep people from gaining weight . He has done trial and error on most of the ADHD/ADD meds. He takes vyvance and intuniv together right now and those are working for him. I wish you luck with this process as some people have to try many different meds and doses until they find something to work well for them. Once I saw my son finally feeling like he fit in with other kids, getting better grades because he could focus, and making friends easier I knew that I did the right thing with him by trying the different meds until one worked. Good luck.
