Blurred vision on ADHD medications at 8yo. glasses?

Is there any ADHD medication that doesn't cause blurred vision? My 8 yr old daughter has ADHD and the doctor has prescribed 3 different medications. And in each case it has caused her vision to get blurry. At her school today they had vision tests, which she failed. This is a tough call for me. Do I get her on glasses to cure the blurred vision caused by the medication and risk her having to be on glasses from now on?

Please check out vision therapy. Your daughter may have visual problems that interfere with her ability to pay attention. If you can resolve those, there is a good chance that the ADHD symptoms would go away - without medications.

You can google "vision and ADHD" or look up one of the many studies on it:

I would ask my Doctor about Glutathione. Also there are studies related to the retna and glutathione association.

I'm hearing more and more about this miracle molecule.

Must Research!
