servere anxiety, could the Focalin be making his anxiety worse?
Hello valeriegirlnoiriega. I doubt it but its possible. Focalin is a stimulant drug but unlike a stimulant, it has the opposite effect. It calms rather than creats anxiety. Hes on the XR which I imagine hes taking once per day. Half or close to it of the dose is released immediately whereas the other half is released later on. You might, if you believe his anxiety is not improving or is becoming worse, mention it to his doctor. There are other drugs to treat your sons condition. Best of wishes along with good health to you both,pledge
