Should you stop taking Focalin on the weekends and then start back on Mondays

My boyfriends son is almost 10 and is taking Focalin. He takes it like he's supposed to during the week and when he's with his mom on her weekend. When he's with us on our weekend his dad doesn't want him to take it because he said it makes his son sad. Is it good to just stop taking this medication and then starting it back up on Monday or should he continue taking it like the bottle says???

Like all meds, I would follow the doctors orders as to when to take the med. Dad needs to call the doc to see what he recommends.

From what he says the dr said it's ok, but he goes to a regular medical dr not a specialist. I've always been told that you need to keep that kind of medication in your system since it works directly with the brain. Thanks for your remark.
