This sounds very much like my situation.

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.

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

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?
