  • i wish i could remember how my SIL gives my nephew his pills but from what i have experienced adderall for a 6 yr old is not good at all. My nephew was saying and doing things you would never imagine a child his age would say or do. Like, he kept telling his teacher he just wanted to die. I think maybe if you can cut them in half that usually helps me, im not very good at taking pills.

  • My doctor told me I could cut it in half, so I'm fairly sure you can crush it and put it in applesauce. The only pills you don't want to crush are time release capusles.
