My son was diagnosed in late in 7th grade. He spent one full day/ 8 hours with a Clinical and Forensic Psychologist and we receive a report that included all educational testing. No other issues or comorbidity. Moderate AHDH predominately inattentive. Never thought or know about ADHD. Anyway, I spent the first month learning everything I could we worked with a ADHD Phcy that prescribed Vyvanse. During this time the doc would use the TOVA test to see if the stimulate was working. I never felt this was the best way but I was learning. I didn't think we have found the best med for him, so I asked this doc if we could try Concerta and he said it was to strong for him but then later he said he didn't use it in his practice We have since changed doctors. We stayed with Vyvanse but I just asked our new doc to trail Concerta. I am considering this because Vyyanse is in the amphetamine class and Concerta is the methamphetamine. i have read a lot here where many of you have tried one class and then another
I know each kiddo is different but I would like to know those who have experience with Concerta AND the kiddo is predominately inattentive
Does Concert help more with focus?
He also takes a long-acting Intiniv at night
Thanks in advance for your advice
