My sons consultant is looking to start my son on dextroamphtamine in a couple of weeks time when he turns 5. Can anyone share their experiences good/bad please, I am feeling quite shaky about it. Have many others been medicated at such a young age? Thank you

Where do you live?

Why would you ask that?

Because a response will be different if you live in the UK or elsewhere.
