My 13 year old Son has recently been diagnosed with ADD, he has just started secondary (high) School and is having a lot of trouble keeping up due to the fact that he 'zones out' for large periods of each class. Homework is a struggle and we can spend up to 4 hours a night trying to get through it. We also find that everything needs to be repeated constantly. He is not 'hyper', in fact he is actually a very lade back kid. The Psychologist I brought him to has recommended that he take Concerta XL and start on 18mgs.
I originally didn't want to put him on any meds but am starting to re-think as he seems to be getting worse. From reading reviews it seems that Concerta can be quite successful when used on kids with ADHD, can anyone let me know if they found it worked with ADD where no 'Hyperactivity' was present?
