I have 3 kids with ADHD. In addition to their Adderall or Ritalin, they take Guanfacine (Intunive)- for Impulsivity.

I used to be very against medicating my children and tried Every natural alternative.
To spare all details of what I've tried, you name it, I've tried it!!! I saw no real change.

Before giving meds, I felt like the worst mother ever. Without these candies, I feel like I'm losing my sanity. They were unmanageable.
Thank you Hashem for this invention. Now our house is a happy calm fun place to be in.
There's a time for everything!
(Forget about how they behave before meds in the morning or in the evening after it wears off... OMG).
The suppressed appetite is not as terrible as their behavior.
You need to sometimes go beyond your comfort zone to give your child a better life.

This is completely incorrect. Many kids start younger, depends on severity. My son started at age 5...

Certain medications are controlled substances and pharmacies cannot fill a prescription for children under the age of 6.
