our daughter was perscribed focalin xr because weekends would be able to be skipped with irresponsible caregivers. Her attention span is not there, behavior and memory from the week is gone.She has all special help( occupational,speech,and a special individual education plan due to disabilities
That's normal since she doesn't take it on the weekend. How does she do once back on it? I would continue it 7 days a week some people think just bc they aren't at school they don't need to focus, but once you stop taking it you won't be able to focus. It's different if your adult, but a child needs to focus all the time. I take adderall and I notice if I don't take it for a weekend it messes me all up.
