Hey I am new here, my son is 5 years old. He was disagnosed with adhd when he was 3. He first was started off on Adderall, which made him lose too much weight then he was switched over to Ritalin. On ritalin it seemed to work for school but he was constantly moody and cried at the drop of a hat. He had trouble going to sleep and his heart was always racing. We are looking at trying Straterra, as its a non stimulant. Does anyone had any success with this medication? Oter meds that didnt have that mood swing problem with? Just looking for insight as he starts kindergarten this coming fall. Thank you.
