My name is L. I have ADD and my Daughter was 6 when placed on Meds for ADD. All I can say is the meds will help her in school,but watch her with eating. I also suggest that you start with a lower dose and work your way up if needed. This is your baby and we have every right to agree or not agree with the doctor. My daughter nearly wasted away on Ridalin( her weight withered to nothing.) In that case there was a time she spent with my exhusband and she was not monitored correctly.We switched to streterra I liked it better,not a stimulant.The side effects are things my daughter struggled with. Reading all the side effects and keeping a diary on her changes of any kind will help you and the Doctor. As for Adderall a NANNY I have play dates with watches a 7 year old who is on it and well again she does great in every area,but I noticed her eating is poor and she was small for her age. I pray you will receive wisdom through my experience. I will keep you in my Prayers,let me know how things go.
ps. You also could try diet changes.
