Comment:
I was taking short acting Ritalin for 18 years before being prescribed Quillivant XL 2 months ago. The medicine has worked beautifully for me. The effects last between 12-14 hours.

Comment:
My son is 8 years old and has been diagnosed with Autism and ADHD. He is very impulsive and hyper. This was the first ADHD medicine that he has been prescribed and we have been very happy with it. He takes 4ml at 7:30am before school and it appears to last until 3pm. His teachers have noticed a huge improvement in his behavior at school. He tells me that he likes taking it because it makes him fee ... Show Full Comment
