My 7 year old son was prescribed this medication in May. Since then it has been a life saver or him and myself. He is able to concentrate better and have more focus. Not certain about the 12-18 lasting though. I tend to give it him about 8am and it seems to wean off by 3:00pm.

I am a veteran ADD patient. I have tried Stratera, Vyvanse, Aderall & Ritalin before. Out of all this is by far the least effective and to have to take it in syrup form is very inconvenient. I would not recommend this to anyone not to mention that it's super expensive.

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.
