Unfotrunately, we have to open the capsules and sprinkle it on applesauce for her. The problem come with "eyeballing" the division of the second capsule so she gets a total of 7.5 mg. Anyone know of a simple way to do this . . . I'm going nuts trying to do this every morning.
I share your concerns and am doing the same thing. It is important to me to provide my daughter with smallest amount of medicine to get the desired result. I found that using two small colored ( I use red) paperplates lets me get a much better feel for the amount on the plate. My daughters neurologist has assured me that because of the time release element in the Focalin XR that so long as I am reasonable in the split she will be okay. I have not yet had any problems and I have had to do this 2 different times now as she has grown.
