Focalin Medication Information

Focalin® (dexmethylphenidate hydrochloride) is a medication often prescribed for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
 
The medicine comes in tablet form and is typically taken by mouth twice a day, with at least four hours between doses.
 
Although Focalin is a stimulant, it actually produces a calming effect when used for treating ADHD. It is not known exactly how the medication works, but it is known to affect certain chemicals in the brain.
 
While the drug has been shown to be effective for improving symptoms of ADHD, not everyone should take this medication. Information on Focalin should be discussed with your healthcare provider beforehand to minimize risks and to help ensure safe treatment. Be sure to talk to your healthcare provider before taking Focalin if you have high blood pressure, mental illness, or glaucoma.
