lol. Hows that workin for ya?
Quoting mommy74146:Why? That's dangerous for a child that young. A cardiologist I worked with said those things are very bad for your heart.
I wouldn't recommend it on that age. That said, after trying dozens of medications, my son started a daily routine that included vitamins that SOME say help ADHD (I didn't notice a difference on their own, but in conjunction with meds, some minor improvement), his meds, and a small cup of sugar free energy drink in the morning. The energy stimulants actually increase how the meds work- kids with these issues find that energy drinks tend to calm them, as opposed to hyping them up.
My son was probably in 6th grade when we tried it, so 11-12? It did help. We tried coffee, but he wouldn't drink it without loading it down with sugar and creamer, and sugar is something that inhibits how well the caffine works in that situations, which is why we turned to sugar free energy drinks. It would take about 3 days for him to finish one.
Now that he's almost 14, we keep one on hand when we're out and about, just in case he starts to get way out of hand.
