Also, my son tried stimulant meds for the first time at age 6 but had really bad “rebound” symptoms when it wore off so we stopped and are just experimenting again with what works now that he’s eight. My doctor said that kids who experience this “rebound” usually grow out of it and it’s common for youngsters to have this problem. By “rebound” I mean he would have extreme mood swings when the meds wore off (yelling, crying, agitation). This was with adderall xr.
