What do you think about ADD medication for a young teen-ager?

Asked by trailsillustrated (16789points) October 11th, 2010

I’ve written about some of the problems I’ve been having with my daughter on here. Anyway, today she told me she is having trouble concentrating. She says she can’t focus. She is doing poorly in school, I’ve seen the work and think with a bit of effort she would have no problems. She’s 14. She thinks she might be ADD. I’m really leery about any phsychiatric or other medications for someone that young. I’ve made an appointment with her paediatritian. Do you think medication for ADD in a young teen is dangerous?
