My son was just diagnosed with ADD, and the doctor prescribed focalin. is it okay to start him on this, when in fact my son admitted to me he does smoke marijiana
Add medication is an upper marijuana is a downer so he would be up and down and maybe cause more problems for himself. It would actually be a better idea if he stopped the marijuana compleltly in order to prevent more problems for himself. Focalin is also similar to ridlin which has amphetamines(speed) type substance really not recommended for someone who has a history of drug abuse(marijuana) he should be okay if he just takes the focalin.
