I don't post very often, but have been given great advice.

Focalin XR and Methylin are the same, but VERY different meds.

A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.

I agree. If you've found what works, stick with it. Don't mess with a good thing. He can always take the second dosage at school. Our son processed Focalin XR extremely fast and it was out of his system by lunch time.
