Keep us updated on how your son is doing! It may be over stimulation like you mentioned and at ten they have so much natural energy on top of it. I’m sure the doctor will increase it a bit to see if that keeps him more focused in school. I tried the ritalyn, and Adderall both but they just didn’t work at all, and didn’t like some of the side effects of Adderall. The first med he was on was focilyn which did help quite well in his younger years and then we went to Vyvannse. I’ll never change the medicine type again. Only the dose. Its better to find the one that works best, and stick with it. Best of luck:-)
