Found 5 pills in my teenage sons drawer.

He's doing something with it and it can't be good. Focalin (dexmethylphenidate) is an amphetamine used to treat ADHD. It can be used as a stimulant or a psychstimulant. It has lots of scary side effects you can warn him about: abdominal pain, liver problems, seizures, hair loss, and toxic psychosis (basically it can make him psychotic). Hope you caught him in time and are able to get through to him about abusing drugs. Good luck and let us know how it turns out. Feel free to contact us any time. Good luck and God bless.
