I know I could look up the medical info, but I would like to hear from some real moms who have dealt with this medication and how did you child react? My daughters 9 yr old just got put on this and she is not happy with "medicating" him. The psychiatrist said he is showing some minor signs of ADHD, some focus problems and so try this. But we don't want to give him something that is going to change his personality or change who he is. We are more than willing to HELP him in any way, but not give him some meds just to make him a zombie or cookie cutter kids. He has a great personality and into lots of sports, all sports and has been since 4 yrs old. He is very outgoing and we are not willing to scacrifice HIM for the sake of making it easier on the system.
