Hello. My son is 9. He has combined Type ADHD and anxiety. I have tried a multitude of natural things and therapy and now I am ready to try medication. I am unsure about extended release because I’ve heard it’s harder to get off of it take breaks from. I’m also concerned about a longer lasting med affecting appetite and sleep. What are your experiences?
This medication primer is a great place to separate fact form fiction when it comes to ADHD meds and learn what to expect. I personally have never heard that extended release medications are harder to take breaks from.
