Day one of Focalin XR

and I was underwhelmed. But I am not sure if my expecatations were too high...We started our son on Focalin XR yesterday. No real marked changes but it is harder to see during the summer, I would think, since most of his problems center around getting schoolwork done. He might have been slightly less talkative. He did, however, move his jaw back and forth a lot which makes me think I should call the doctor. He seemed a little "off" to me. He had a lot of energy though and ran several laps around the lake.

No headache or appetite changes, which were what we were expecting. He did have a hard time falling asleep and when he got up this a.m. he was talking, talking, talking - more than usual.

The doctor made it sound like we'd see changes immediately. We saw some but they were not really good ones, imo. Am I expecting too much, too soon?

Re: Day one of Focalin XR

kid's not in school, why is he being medicated? i notice if I don't have anything important to do, stimulants cause more problems than they solve for me.
