Day 1 of my 8 (almost 9) year old's Focalin XR med journey.
Nothing to report on day 1. Her appetite remains steady and their is no change in behavior.
If you're curious on the special permissions her doctor recommended, here are a few:
1. Never punish her by having her miss recess.
2. Wear noise cancelling headphones.
3. Sit closer to the board and/or teacher in class.
4. Allow her a series of breaks throughout the day.
