My 11 year old was taking Rivotril and another substance that her neurologist had recommended when he first had an eye twitching tic. He continued taking these from that onset, 3 months. It`s been almost a year since then and he has slowly stopped twitching his eyes, without any drops. Hence, stop all contact with the substance and look for an alternative is my best advice. Unless it is a counterpart of the drug and you must weigh the benefits.

From what I have read, it is more common than not for people with ADD/ADHD to also have tics, and/or several other disorders, regardless of medication. It may just be coincidence that the tics are becoming evident while your child is taking Adderall, and stopping it would not stop the tics. Be sure your child's doctor specializes in ADD or ADHD. In addition to your doctor, pharmacists can be a wealth of information when it comes to medications and their side effects.

Budeprion (bupropion XL) is a NDRI (noradrenaline/dopamine/norepinephrine re uptake inhibitor) used to treat major depressive disorder (MDD), and occasionally used to treat anxiety or ADD/ADHD. adderall (amphetamine salts), is used to treat ADD/ADHD. the difference between these two drugs is the method of action. budeprion stops the chemical re uptake of dopamine (only slightly), noradrenaline and norepinephrine (neurotransmitters in the brain) solely, and has no effect on the immediate release of them. it also takes quite a while to start having a real effect (3-6 weeks), whereas adderall starts working 30 minutes or so after it is taken. adderall (amphetamine) not only prevents the re uptake of dopamine and norepinephrine (like budeprion), it largely stimulates the immediate release of these neurotransmitters into the synapse(s). therefore, adderall is a much more stimulating chemical used almost exclusively to treat ADD/ADHD, whereas budeprion XL is used largely to treat depression. basically, budeprion is an antidepressant, adderall is a stimulant.

you should run away or something like that
