Thank you sun mouse 41. Especially for all advice on natural remedies which I will definitely try. I completely understand your cousins refusing ritalin if it gave them those side effects. From what I believe, it really shouldn’t have those side effects, and if it does it should be stopped and the medication changed. I certainly dont have any side effects on ritalin…maybe appetite to a certain extent, but I can get over that. Have you found adderall (which actually isn’t licensed here), good. prhaps amphetamines would have less desirable side effects than methylphenidates for my son. ….
Thank you
