I think getting her re-evaluated definitely the next step, it sounds like either Focalin is the wrong med for her or there is something else going on. How did your counseling session go?

There is def something going on - does your doc have all the family history - what kind of doc are you going too.

A re-eval is a great idea, and Focalon is probably not the right med for her. It is an 8 hour med, so it will wear off sooner than a 12 hour med like Concerta. Her issues do sound like ADHD, but she could have other problems as well.

This sounds very much like my situation.
