      My son started Quillivant xr 20ml today. His heart rate was as high as 140pbm. That is very scary to me. Obviously we are being followed by a competent MD but I’d love to hear any helpful input. TYIA

      Quillivant 20 mg or 20 mL? Starting dose is 4 mL (which is 20mg). The good thing about Quillivant is you can fine tune the dose since it’s a liquid. You should call the prescribing doctor to discuss this as soon as possible. They might have you lower the dose and see if heart rate improves.
