My daughter has tried Focalin and Concerta and now the doc has prescribed Metadate. Focalin all but made her stop eating. She all the sudden could no longer swallow the Concerta pill (she's 8), so he went with Metadate b/c it's a capsule that can be opened and spread over yogurt or applesausce. I haven't filled the Metadate RX hoping to control with diet and supplements, but I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle with the school. Her teacher is not equipped to deal with ADHD students and keeps isolating my daughter.....I keep saying just 3 more months of school...
