    Our 7 year old son takes 3 ML each morning before school around 8:30 am. His in-school behavior has improved a ton, teachers are very happy. Around 5 pm we find he stops listening well and goes back to his frustrating behaviors, doesn't settle for bedtime, etc. Still figuring out what to do about the evening time. But overall this medicine has let him keep his sparkly self and be successful ... Show Full Comment

    My 7 year old takes this daily.... it is very easy for me as a parent and it appears that she is happier when taking it. I had to take her off for 3 months because she developed a choking phobia and lost a ton of weight. Once she conquered that and her weight went up.... we put her back on quillavent. She is happier and we see major difference in her school work. Down side.... it only lasts 6 hour ... Show Full Comment

    My 8 year old daughter has been on this medicine for over a year. Total difference this medicine has made on her abilities at school and at home. However, she seems to be experiencing some side effects but I want to know why all of a sudden they are showing up? Wouldn't it show within the first few months?

    My son is 7yrs old and has been on quillivant for several months now! His grades improved, his behavior at school as well! It's so nice to finally hear his teacher saying positive things and praising my son for once instead of "he didn't have a good day". When it wears off he's just more active I'm blessed he doesn't get irritable, and one thing I love is that my son ... Show Full Comment

    My grandson has begun taking this medicine. I wanted to share, as when he first started (very low dose, 1 ml in the am, also on intuniv), I thought it was terrible as he was super emotional as it would wear off. The doctor added an afternoon dose, and it is night and day especially as the dosage was tweaked and increased slightly. She explained that his reaction was due to the meds wearing off cre ...
