DYK I used to have to regularly do stool tests on Eric; some took up to 5 days.

DYK thanks; this is the fourth med Eric has tried. I am going to call the doc, but I have a feeling he isn't in today (it's a Jewish holiday).
DYK I was just curious about your experience.

DYK I second Jennie...call the doc.

DYK when we started Focalin XR at the lowest dose -- we saw no difference whatsoever in Nick. After the agreed on 1 week, we bumped up 5 mg (to 10mg) and that's when we saw a difference. But it was the exact opposite of what you saw. He was a much calmer, able to focus kid. I describe Nick when unmedicated as a "ping pong ball"....he literally bounces from thought to thought, and activity to activity.

DYK also his impulsivity and doing things without thinking -- that was a big one we were looking to address and 5mg no difference, 10mg he actually THINKS before he does things...

DYK is this the first stimulant med?
DYK the families of meds are so different, but I agree with Jennie -- if it gets worse, I'd stop that one and look to another type of stimulant med (different drug).
