My ped is discussing the possibilities of putting my 4.5 year old on meds for ADHD. She has given me two meds to research, and I figure what better way to find out about them then to talk to parents who has kids with ADHD. the meds are vyvanse and strattera. what are the pros and cons of them? Which one seems to work better for your child and why?
