We actually used aderall XR for my 12 year old, but combined it with Guanficine (1 mg) in am and 1 mg at bedtime to balance it out at the suggestion of our psychiatrist, which I think worked well together.When we tried guanficine by itself it put him to sleep. and then a low dose of fluoxetine first the emotional flooding. Our issue was that with most of the stimulants caused him not to eat, so ended up taking him off everything in March due to lack of growth and increased anxiety from the stimulants. It’s back to the drawing board now. Not looking forward to it.
