My 11 year old son is on Focalin 10 mg twice a day. He has been on it for 2 years now. Recently we have noticed that in the morning before his dose or after school his behavior got worse meaning he is off track, very irritable, not compliant and arguing a lot. He is doing excellent in school. I have talked to his doctor and she said he needs additional dose of medication. My concern is that he’s already not eating a lot and takes 7am ,1 pm dose and now dr. wants to do 3 pm dose. That’s only 2 hours apart.
What is your opinion?
