So, difficult child started Adderall XR yesterday (5mg, low dose). His main problems, I think, are with impulsiveness and aggression towards other kids at school, and defiance towards the teacher in particular. Although his teacher and the school complain of his hyperactivity, I haven't noticed that much of an issue with it at home, but then I don't have to have him sit down and do work. Anyway, since he started the Adderall he has been talking.non.stop. He has never been this chatty. It is constant! He does seem a little bit more tempered, but slightly more hyperactive and WAY more talkative. I did find one forum where several people stated that they or their children had the same reaction, and that it wore off after a few days as their bodies adjusted to the medication. I'm hoping thats the case, because if not I can't imagine what school would be like and I'm thinking that there is no way that this would work. If it doesn't wear off, should I start thinking that ADHD was an incorrect diagnosis? Or is it possible that his dose is just too low? I guess time will tell.
