3 years old?? oh my goodness, i think she is way too young to be on adderall, or any other medication for that matter

What was the dose? When did she take it?

That's sort of ridiculous. I mean, I know the criteria require impairment from before age 7, but I can't possibly think of any ADHD symptoms a 3 year old could be exhibiting.

Can she not sit through Dora or something?

Out of what are probably thousands of kids over the years, I can recall a (very ) small

number,literally to be "counted on one hand," of 3 year olds that I diagnosed with ADHD.

In cases such as those, I always opted for more than one session,as well as for second

opinions from pediatric specialists, as well as their pediatrician.

The point being that it can happen.

Since I don't practice on the net, the most I can say is Welcome to the FORUM and I

hope things get better soon.

Is the ADHD related to the Turner syndrome?
