View Full Version : Going back on medication

10-03-07, 12:48 PM
My 11 yr. old son has been off of Adderall XR since Jan. 2007. We took him off the medication because it was making him depressed and he actually said he did not want to live anymore. He did very well in school for the rest of the school year. Now that school has started back he is having major problems staying focused and the teacher has said he daydreams all day and wont complete his work. We go to the Dr. next week to get back on medication.

My question is has anyone had any experience with the patch causing depression? He does need some type of medication to help with his inattentativeness but I don't want him to be depressed either.

Any insight would be appreciated.
