My 13 year old son and 11 year old daughter have been on the patch for a week. What can I say, other than I LOVE the patch so far. My daughter hates taking pills and they always upset her stomach (no matter which med we tried). The patch does not hurt her stomach, sleeps better at night and is eating better.

My son is doing very well. He was on Adderall XR. (20mg) While it was successful in helping his ADHD, the rebounds were terrible. With the patch, there is no rebound and when he takes it off.. How nice! He also is sleeping better, eating better and does not overtake his personality.

However, he says that it does not "wake" him up like the Adderall. Which he liked being that he gets up at 5:30 for school. He says that he does not feel the patch working, although he says that he is focusing in class and his behavior shows that it is working.

Has anyone else heard this from their child? I am thinking it is just because the medicine works differently and does not feel that "jolt" as with Adderall in the morning and evenings.
i think he might try just getting some more sleep the adderall xr seems to trick my body into not realizing i'm tired i could get by with just a couple hours sleep but now that i'm off it i just can't do that anymore :(
