My DD was officially diagnosed yesterday with ADD. We've known she has problems focusing but we were hoping to push through without meds. But at 10 and in danger of failing the 3rd grade, mainly because she's bad at focusing on doing the practice end of grade tests. So today was her first day on vyvanse. She seems better in her behavior, more mature but omg her mouth has not stopped. Now her older sisters and father have the gift of gab but she was always quiet and shy. Not sure if it has improved her schoolwork yet but my 16 y/o thinks this is a BAD side effect. Lmao.
So any advice on what to be looking for as far as what to expect on the meds or things I should be looking for as a sign to get her trying different meds is appreciated!
