  • I have a 6 yo that is bipolar and is on Straterra and clonidine and a 7 yo with ADHD that is currently unmedicated. She goes to the psychiatrist next week. She was diagnosed at the age of 4 and used to be on clonidine.

  • My son has ADHD, he's 4. We don't have him on medication at this point. But, I've heard good things about Straterra and Vyvanse.
