  • My SS took a med for ADHD that did that to him and we called the dr immediatly and he was taken off. It was too much for his body to process. He is now on ritalin and takes melatonin (sp?)at night to help him sleep better. I would call you dr if the reaction is that severe-a little drowzy is one thing but falling over is not ok.
