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

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.

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.
