I agree with Penny on another med family. We use Concerta which is in the methylphenidate family. Works great for the school day. A side effect though could be more aggression as the stimulant may irritate other areas of the brain. Our doctor has us using supplements such as Serotonin to help ease and offset the stimulant. We are going to try GABA as well.
Ask your doctor about supplements to use with the med.
