My 9 year old has been struggling in school, they began testig her for a variety of things. They discovered that she does have a few learning disabilities and ADD. We talked to her pediatrician and she prescribed focalin XR, I have not started her yet. I can't decide if it is a good idea. Any advise.....

My daughter also takes Vyvanse, and it has helped her a lot. I was opposed to medicating until I realized what it must be like for her. If I could not focus on things long enough to complete them I'd probably think I was just dumb and not capable of doing a lot of things; I didn't want my daughter feeling that way.

I know my kid isn't stupid, so why does he do this?
