Can anyone explain the side effects and feeling you have when focalin is wearing off? This is a new med my dr was talking about and was curious. Thanks.

Terrible, being on focalin was the best mentally and felt the best while being on it. But when I came down (IS) ADHD was 5x worse. Felt completely tired and unable to start tasks. Insomnia was worse.

I notice being tired/unmotivated and loosing my keys. My mood slightly improves and I am more emotional.

Focalin XR has a great time release. I only notice these side effects by intentionally missing 2-3 doses. When I was on adderall eating the wrong thing could cause it to stop working before the next dose.

What food ?

For me, when the Ritalin dose was too high, I'd feel grouchy at night.

Focalin worked great for me for a while- no sleep issues, no rebound or crashing at all.

But over time I think it started to mess with my anxiety in a bad way, and I'm back on dexdrine now, which does mess with my sleep a bit more.

I would try it out, I really liked it while it was working well for me.
