Do u have a child or children on any kind of medicine for add or adhd. My youngest dd whose 11 was just prescribed Focalin only 5mg and so im hoping it will help her because she does loose interest quicker and tends not to stay on track in school. So anyone have any helpful info. Thanks in advance.

DS was briefly on Adderrall XR. My only advice is to be patient. Finding the right med and dosage can take awhile.

My son was on Focalin a couple of years. It worked very well for him. My son has tried a couple different ones. That one and the one he is on now, Daytrana, are good for him.

Unfortunally meds are a trial and error so be patient.

We are in the process of diagnosing ADD.  If he does, I want to try other methods before putting him on medication.
