My 9 year old is ADHD and the doctor prescribed 30mg Ritalin LA. It worked pretty well but he got stomache aches. I wanted to try reducing the dose but the Doctor insists that the right way to eliminate side effects is to increase the dose and gave us 40. Now my son also has extreme dry mouth and constantly purses his lips. The doctor keeps on insisting that reducing the dose won't help. Is she right?
