Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

There is current information from the FDA saying that Quillivant xr has not been studied in children less than six years of age. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends behavioral therapy before trying medication for children less than six years old for ADHD.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
