I am not much help, but my 7 yr old just started on Adderall and is up all night. He has always had mood swings but every day around 4:00 pm on Adderall he is an emotional mess. I don’t even see much difference in his inattentive symptoms and now I am thinking life was better pre-medication. What to do? It’s so hard!

I will say that when I started Adderall I felt a night and day difference and it has helped me sooo much so I was excited to try it with my son, but so far no luck.
