My son started out on the Focalin XR. It was nice because we could open the capsule and sprinle the beads on applesauce because he cant swallow a pill. The exteneded release however lasted too long for my son and it was keepin him up half the night. We have switched him to the short acting Focalin which he takes twice a day and it is working much better for us.
