I was just wondering if anyone has experience w metadate? My difficult child has been on it since oct. first it was 10mgs then 20 now 30 mgs once a day. I have noticed side affects since increasing like J being very quiet, not eating, saying his ears ring ect... I have been splitting the pill 1/2 in the am 1/2 as soon as he gets home from school and it seems to help. I myself have been on adderal and dexadrine in the past and was wondering if something like that would be better, any thoughts?
