I currently take 40 MG XR and then 40 MG IR in the afternoon, 20 MG at a time, spread out between 4 hours. I am wondering if I should just switch to increments of 20 MG IR spread throughout the day four times. What do you guys think?

You currently take 40mg XR first thing in the morning and say 5-6 hours later you take 20mg IR and say 2 hrs later another 20mg Focalin IR?? I don't see why not, but if it is presently working for you, why would you want the change? Lemme Know, -LN

I take 40 MG XR around 8 AM. Then 20 IR at 2 PM and 20 IR around 5 ish, give or take an hour. I actually like XR, it's just this crap Teva generic doesn't work. I'm getting brand next time. I was just interested because I had assumed XR was the exact same as two IR doses four hours apart.
