I am 28 y/o and struggles with ADHD symptoms all my life. Over the past three months or so I decided to be more proactive and seek medication treatment. I was prescribed focalin xr 10 mg. Primary to help me focus and work and study for my board exam. I started taking the medication on Tuesday and Wednesday and it did wonders for my attention span and focus. Then on Thursday the medication stopped working around 4pm, I was ******. I hope it does not do it tomorrow.

this seems to be the biggest issue with ritalin . It just doesn't last very long, but what really does? I really have to say that I like focalin and focalin xr. It just seems to need to be re dosed very often and thats going to be the case for most adults I'd think.

Jot things like that down for the doc, I'm sure it'll prove useful in finding the right medication/dosage/variation for you. I've heard many on here say that they went through a trial and error period before they found what worked best for them. Good luck!
