View Full Version : General Titration question

With any of the stimulants, what do you generally see in your child when you titrate up (assuming it is close to an affective dose)?

Is there an adjustment period where they are a bit over-emotional and argumentative but then it calms down and is a good dose? Or is that a sign that it is automatically too high, even from the first day or two?

I am trying to decide whether to try 15mg of Focalin with my son for a few more days or go back down to 10 (which didn't seem to be completely effective). I will call his pediatrician tomorrow, but she felt his dose would be around 15 and to titrate up to that. He was on 10mg for a week.

Advice?
