My son has ADD and has always struggled with school. His new class started today and he is already getting frustrated and is in a bad mood due to the struggle that he is having over taking notes. He was on Vyvanse for a long time but it started to not agree with him and he stopped. In two weeks, he is seeing his doctor and I want him to try Focalin. Is there anyone who has taken this medication and did it help with note taking. Any other suggestions to get through a college class from anyone with ADD? Has anyone had success with any ADD medications that we don't hear much about? He has tried all the familiar ones. Unfortunately, I don't see him recording the lectures and then taking notes off the recording. Any suggestions will be helpful. Thank you!
