We saw psychiatrist yesterday because the Focalin easy child is taking doesn't seem to be as effective as it used to be. I could have sworn easy child was already on the highest possible dose of Focalin, which is 10 milligram pills twice a day. I thought psychiatrist would have to try something else with him, but instead he increased the dosage. He wrote out a prescription for 30 milligrams twice a day. I looked it up online today on a couple of medical websites because I didn't think that sounded right. Turns out the highest recommended dose for Focalin is 20 milligrams total daily. Well psychiatrist is trying to put him on 60! I am going to call him later when he gets in to question him about it. I haven't attempted to get the prescriiption filled yet. Has anybody heard of a dose that high? Like maybe the recommended amount is 20 mgs but you can really go higher if necessary? It just doesn't seem right to me.
