The Dr. has perscribed 20mg Metadate CD, which is supposed to last 6 - 8 hours, rather than 10 - 12 hours. We are going to try this on days that can be "short". He told me that her dose should be between 10 - 15 mg to be equal to what she was getting with 36mg concerta. He said to open up the Metadate and portion our 1/2 to 3/4 and give it to her that way. However, according to the literature and the pharmacist, you can't open up the capsules...????? Also, the pharmacist said the lowest dose is 20 mg. I am worried that this will be too much.
So does anyone have experience with using Metadate CD vs. Concerta, and what dosages are you using?
