    Hi,
    My 16 year old daughter has been on Adderall for 4 years. Ritalin stopped working when puberty hit.Adderall has generally been very good for her.However we must be careful with her dosage or she has no appetite.(won't eat bkft or lunch)and develops insomnia.The Dr. has reduced her dosage by one third, because she wants to eventually become medication free. We will reduce it more eventually.If you need any more info. or suggestions, just ask.
