I have twin boys on Focalin XR 5 mg for inattentiveness at school they are 1st grade. It does not last all day due to fact they cannot swallow a capsule and I have to put it in their milk to drink per their pediatrician instruction. But once 2 pm hits the teachers are calling bc one or both them are screaming again or they are having a tantrum. Anyone else having this issue? We just started this medication for our boys.

Many kids who take a morning med for ADHD need a short acting "bump" dose between 12-3 in the afternoon. What services are they getting to help with their behavior currently?
