They prescribed it for my 5 year old grandson. When I looked it up it sounds like it is just another form of ritalin; it did say not to give it to kids under 6. I'm not sure the kid's problem is ADHD; he does have a problem, but it could just be immaturity coupled with a low IQ and a dose of naughty behavior thrown in for good measure. My personal feeling is that doctors are too quick to medicate kids, but I'm old so maybe I'm out of touch. Anybody have any experiences with this?
