The dose of Daytrana that a healthcare provider recommends may vary depending on a number of factors, including:
- The patient's age
- Other ADHD medications that have been tried
- Other medical conditions the patient has
- Other medications the patient may be taking.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose (or your child's dose) unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
(Click Daytrana Dosage for more information about dosing for Daytrana.)
As with any medicine, there are possible side effects with Daytrana. However, not everyone who uses the patch will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it well. When side effects do occur, they are often minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
The most common side effects of Daytrana include:
Daytrana can cause high blood pressure. Usually, this increase in blood pressure is temporary and does not cause any problems. The medication can also increase the chance of seizures and can make certain heart conditions and mental problems worse.
