Which Tris ADHD medication is right for my child?

Only your child's doctor can help you decide which medication is right for your child. This may involve an examination by the doctor, who may ask questions and may perform tests to help with the diagnosis before deciding to prescribe medication.

If you and your child's doctor decide that a methylphenidate is right for your child and they prefer a tablet that can be chewed or swallowed whole, talk to your doctor about QuilliChew ER® (methylphenidate hydrochloride).

If your child is ready for an amphetamine medication and prefers the flexibility of a liquid, talk to your doctor about DYANAVEL® XR (amphetamine).
