I'm trying it out now. Wondering how others have done? It's not going great for me. Most days it doesn't seem to do anything until I'm ready for bed. Then I feel focused and can't sleep. I work a rotating shift which is hell for sleep any way, I don't need this to make things worse. Not sure if taking more Concerta would be any better.

I've been on focalin for a year now. Recently, i've gone from 20mg (xr) in the morning and 10mg in the night to 30mg (xr) in the morning and 10mg at night.

Focalin does give me insomina, especially if i take it after 8, but i think that is a side affect of any stimulant. I feel like i've slowly developed a tolerance to it though, my daily dose does not give me the rush of energy and concentration it used to.
