  1. Hi, I have 3 children, (girls) my 17 year old, has ADHD, and my 13 year old also. My oldest daughter who is 20 years old, has been very close with her sisters, she doesn't have the symptoms for ADHD. My oldest daughter and her father, (my ex-husband), at their house, has "not" seen any signs of ADHD in my two youngest daughters. My 17 year old, was on "Ritilin" 10mg., when she was 13-14, this made her very sleepy, so her doctor took her off of it, and didn't prescribe her with anything else, and she hasn't been back to her doctor since, for ADHD. My ex-husband claimed that she doesn't have ADH
