Focalin XR... How much is too much???

Randi - posted on 07/21/2016 ( no moms have responded yet )




My 7 year old son was diagnosed with ADHD when he was around 3. He has been on Ritalin, Adderrall 5-35mg XR, and now Focalin 35XR.. He takes a midday dose of Focalin 10mg around 2:00.. And takes clonidine 0.2mg at night. Not been on the 35 long enough to really see a difference yet, but he takes the clonidine at night and he doesnt sleep. He goes to bed at 7:30 and is up all night or he will go to sleep for about 3 hours and up the rest of the night, without falling asleep the next day. I dont know what else to do. He also takes melatonin with his night meds. NOTHING is working.. Any ideas????
