There isn't one of us that I know that is stupid. That is a misconception. If you haven't been treated which I can't advise but I will say that the medicine works if it is the right one and don't let your doctor tell you you can't be treated if they do contact Shire.
Actually Charlie I'd let Web MD answer this question and ask the ADD staff which I have a letter from the man that at one time was head of their department but I can't put my hands on it right now or I'd give you his name. He would answer any questions you might have and his words have rang true in my life and the medicine works!
