My 13 year old was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 9. We've tried Ritalin, Strattera, Concerta, Adderall, Dexedrineand Tenex. Currently he takes Wellbutrin and it's working pretty well. He has been on it for about 6 months. He still gets in trouble in school for talking too much. But I'd say overall he is doing much better.

Wellbutrin, isnt that a anti-depressive? My almost 11 yr old is on Prozac right now, but he is also on a combo of Concerta and Straterra.

Yes it is anti-depressant. I'm not sure how it works for ADHD. But I know it's working lol.

Thanks for psoting this, the prozac my son is on for his depression makes him tired so he can only take it at night, but I would like an alternative to that for during the day, to see if it can help with his ODD or if we need to find something specific for his ODD.
