My 8yr old was just diagnosed this summer but we knew all along it was ADD but she also has some anxiety and OCD tendencies. We started our first med Vvyanse which is supposed to be more mellow. We tried 10mg and got up to 30mg.
It was like she was on speed. She would talk non stop never letting anyone get a word in edge wise. I dont feel like anything improved. I know it is a trial and error but we only have 1 week til school starts. Her anxiety seemed a little more heightened as well which I was aware could happen.
Any ideas on what to try next? Dr had also recommended Zenzedi as a mellow one. I have had heard horror stories on kids coming off of Adderall. THanks so much!!
