Has anyone heard of concerta causing depression in children? My son is 10 yrs old and weighs 50lbs. He is so small and thin due to the medications he has been on over the years for his ADHD.
Is stratera any better? I am most worried about his weight and the mood swings.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

My son takes concerta and he has done much better this school year, but he does have an eating disorder with this medication. He has taken Strattera in the past and it also caused an eating disorder, he also stayed tired all the time and then after he had been taking the med for a while he started having mood swings everyday as the medication wore off. My son is 6 years old and weighs 29 pounds. He has taken a number of medications in the past. Concerta has been the only one to help him. I will tell you this all children react differently to the different medications as you probley already know. Ill pray that you and your son gets through this.
