My son is 15 now, diagnosed ADHD and ODD. He has taken Adderall and Risperidone now for 8 years. At first he was taking the risperdone during the day but he was falling asleep in class and had a hard time waking up. She then said to take it before bed. He sleeps well. After he takes it he is so tired but she said she wanted him taking it for the ODD. Now I have a daughter diagnosed ADD and she is taking Adderall 10 mg and is doing excellent! Honor roll student and I don’t have any problems with her, she is 7.
