HI again April!!

Once I took him off the Concerta and put him on the Strattera, it took about a week for the tics to completely disappear. As for the Aderall, Im not too sure about that one. Like I said before, finding a med or meds that will work for your child is a huge guessing game. Think of it this way... each child is different; different weights, different symptoms, different levels of ADD or ADHD. Trust me, I know and feel your frustration. I too feel horrible about giving my son meds, but not doing it and having him face a lifetime of losing friends that dont understand and him possibly hating school is just not worth it. There's many parents out there just like you and I, so never feel alone.

Hang in there girl! Go with what your doc wants and watch your son as close as you can. Also, make sure you know how soon you will see the effects with each med. I know that with the Strattera, it takes 4-6 weeks to see the full effect it will have. I think most of the stimulants are more immediate, but do your homework just in case :)

Again, I hope I helped and offered you some hope and support.
