View Full Version : Focalin and food synergy

04-27-14, 06:36 PM
Has anyone found that eating with focalin produces better results? By this I mean that I feel a stronger but more mellow peak of efficacy if I eat with it. Without food the side effects like anxiety, hyperfocus, etc. seem worse. Also, my mood and motivation are at all time highs when I eat with it in the morning.
I take 30 mg XR once a day as prescribed.

Hoping for replies, cheers!

Welcome to the forum!

Yes - this is the same for all the stimulant medications used to treat ADHD. You described it pretty much perfectly. A good breakfast with protein gives the best effect.
