Re: ADHD but with ULTRA RAPID METABOLIZING

My youngest granddaughter has the testing to see which meds have the best
chance of helping instead of trialing med after med after med.

Her older sister has not had the testing, she's 20 now so by the time it was
available here she had aged out of the state health insurance program.

She took Concerta starting at age 11 and it worked very well, but only worked
for about 7 hours, nothing like the 10-12 hours the manufacturer boasts.
Over time, 1 to 2 years, the duration tapered off to maybe 5 hours.

I was hoping her doctor would give her a booster dose of Ritalin since this med
seems to work for her, but the doctor switched her to Vyvanse which became
a horror show.
