can it be put in apple sauce and given to the child
Yes, you can open the Focalin XR capsule & sprinkle it on apple sauce. Do NOT crush the beads inside the capsule & make sure your child DOES NOT chew the apple sauce. Your child MUST swallow the apple sauce WITHOUT CHEWING. Chewing the apple sauce can crush the Focalin XR beads & destroy the time release effects of the medication, giving your child too much of the medication at once. Also, if you do not use the apple sauce sprinkled with Focalin XR on it right away or by a certain time, you may have to throw out the apple sauce. Check with your doctor on that. Hope this helps!
