  • you may find this all natural medication very helpful, as opposed to harmful chemicals that have terrible mental, emotional and physical side effects.

  • Oh and just FYI he does NOT have any "terrible" side effects. He's a normal, healthy boy who does normal everyday stuff. He is not dibilitated by his medication in any way.

  • My son is on metadate and it changed his whole world. Thank god! I didnt wanna believe he was ADHD and I didnt wanna put my kid on meds. Im so happy I did.. he doesnt have any side effects. He was making f's and now A's B's and maybe one C. He also got an E in conduct and Is still in a ese class but, he teacher told me he is a model student. Besides hes So much happier too~ So say whatever u want... I know ppl are gonna be mean and rude but if u dont have a kid with ADHD/ ADD then u have no idea. Besides the med only works for kids that r truly ADHD cuz, I know alot of kids are miss diagn!! Any moms that have kids that are ADHD add me as a friend please... I dont personally know any moms where I live that have kids with it. SO id be so glad to hear ure stories!

  • My daughter found medication very helpful to her. You can watch for side effects....and you can always try a different medication if necessary. These kids sometimes really need help and if it is out there and available I can not see letting them suffer socially and academically, and having their self-esteem shattered along the way.
