I was wondering if anyone had young children that or have taken Concerta and if it helped them... My girls started out on 18mg and just moved up to 27mg. They 18mg was like they were not on nothing at all! I am hoping this is going to help them.....They have ADHD and ODD and are ages 6 and 9.View Thread
Both of my daughters who are 9 and 6 have been on Intunitiv for over 2 years now and have moved all the way up to the max dosage of 4 mg. They have complained of their eyes hurting and it can cause dizziness at times. I was concerned at times of my youngest one complaining about her eyes that I took her to a eye doctor and found out that the medication causes the eyes to dilate when its taken and also causes the eyes to be more dry, so he recommended for her to use a eye drop that you can buy over the counter just to use when they bother her. It seems to help most of the time. I will say that the Intunitiv is a great drug for children with ODD and ADHD combined.View Thread
