What is the best route of administration to get the most effects? ## This tablet contains 30mgs of Dexmethylphenidate, the active ingredient in Focalin, which is most commonly used to treat ADHD. The best route of administration is to take the tablets, by swallowing them orally, just as they are prescribed. It is not safe to try to use them in any other manner, because they are not formulated to be used that way, so it could result in overdose, or other health complications. Are there any other comments or questions? ...

focalin and adderal
2 Replies RSS
Is adderal and focalin made out of the same ingredients ## No, they are not. Adderall contains mixed Amphetamine salts. Learn more Adderall details here. And Focalin contains Dexmethylphenidate. Learn more Focalin details here. They are commonly used to treat many of the same conditions, but the active ingredients are different. Have you been switched from one to the other? ## My son is being treated for ADD as was his older brother many years ago. Like his brother, it was trial and error to find a med that didn't produce unwanted emotional side effects. Adderal didn't work for either and now the doctor is suggesting Focalin. Doing my research it appears that Focalin may have more addictive/dependency side effects. True? ...

My eight year old son was on Adderal ER 15 mg for about 8 months and he really did well at school finally. Last week the Dr. noticed he has lost 8 lbs since we started it and now switched him to 15mg of Dexmethylph Er. He now weighs 45.2 lbs and is 47 in. tall. Is this going to make a difference? I know he won't gain weight by using this but how is it different than Adderal? ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Dexmethylphenidate is very similar, but not exactly the same, so there's a chance that it won't cause the same anorexic side effect for him that the Adderall did. However, the most common side effects include nausea, dizziness, insomnia and irritability. Are there any other questions or concerns? ...

how much is too much when using focalin xr 15mg recreationally?
1 Reply RSS
I opened and crunched 24 focal xr 15mg capsules in about 14-16 hrs. I have a very high tolerance to any drug, and I'm a small female. I feel shaky but ok. Is that too much? Just a waste probably- the buzz didn't get better.... ## From what I could gather, Doses above 30 mg/day in pediatrics and 40 mg/day in adults have not been studied and are not recommended. There is also no body of evidence available from controlled trials to indicate how long the patient with ADHD should be treated with Focalin XR. So if you're using Focalin XR (Dexmethylphenidate Hydrochloride) in a recreational manner, I would still play it safe and definitely steer clear from taking so many capsules. Nervousness and anxiety are both common side effects of taking too much, which may have attributed to ... ...

I suggest you do some research and see which plans you can get and what they will cover. ## I have my regular insurance from the school distrist I taught in. And I just turned 65: Medicare won't help either. I am still researching. ## see reply 2 to: Focalin And Insurance ## I have no insurance and pay out of pocket.
