My 14 year old daugther has been on Adderall fo 6 years
I am looking for answers really. It seems like adderall has caused more problems than helped. When she started taking the medication it seemed to help her concentrate in school.
However the emotional side effects in the evenings (meltdowns) were upsetting. We wanted to help her in school, so we kept her on it. Now that she has been on it for six years, the emotional ups and downs, are worse and worse.
She is very depressed, and I am wondering if it is the adderall. She is withdrawn and sad at night. On the weekends when we take her off it she is happy and a different person.
