Were you looking for information about Focalin? Foculin is a common misspelling of Focalin.
Focalin® (dexmethylphenidate hydrochloride) is a prescription medication approved to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Although the drug is a stimulant, it causes a calming effect and can help improve the behavior of children and teenagers with ADHD. Among other things, it can help these children and teenagers sit still and pay attention in the classroom.
The medicine comes in tablet form that is taken by mouth twice a day. It does not matter if you take Focalin with or without food. However, if the medication bothers your stomach, try taking it with food. A few of the conditions you should let your healthcare provider know about before beginning treatment include high blood pressure, seizures, and glaucoma.
