METADATE CD: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For ADHD “Yes its the only thing that works for me, and now my insurance will not cover it. I’ve tried everything else for ADHD. I wish there was a way that the maker would help in lowering the price of this drug . I’m disabled from stage 4 cancer. I’ve been in remission for 12 yrs and 2 months 2 days. It helps me to complete all the everyday tasks. I’d really appreciate if their was some kind of help”

For ADHD “My son is currently on 20mgs once a day. Diagnosed and medicated September 2016. We noticed he does this blank stare where his eyes roll up and makes a tasting motion with his mouth. I notified Dr and he had a EEG done. Turns out they were seizures. He is doing super well in school, complete 180 but I don’t think it worth it. He’s now on liquid keppra. I feel like has just going down hill. Super irritable, mood swings which they said was a side effect of being on both. Very disheartening. Waiting for MD to call back to change his med to a non stimulant.”

For ADHD “I was on metadate 60 mg from 9-14 and it created a very intense anxiety and paranoia threw out my teenage years. Worst CNS medicine I’ve ever taken. I was on CNS medication from 6-16 and it did nothing but worsen long term. And leave me like a zombie while I was on it.”

For ADHD “My son has been on this medication for 4 years. He’s now on 40 MG and it has been a Godsend! He went from Ds and Fs to As and Bs. It wears off after school but as long as he makes it through school that’s all that matters to me!!! I would recommend this medication to any parent. It truly has helped our son and brings out the best in him!”

For ADHD “My son has been on this since 2nd grade. He is now in 5th and is on 60 mg. He has had great success on this medicine. He is more focused, can keep it all together, and as I describe “pretty much all that I can ask for” on the meds. Off meds it’s a whole different story. He has no side effects other he is not as hungry during the day.”
