Limiting Focalin XR Withdrawal

People who are taking prescribed doses of Focalin XR for legitimate medical purposes do not usually need to worry about Focalin XR withdrawal. However, if you have been taking very large Focalin XR doses, you may want to talk with your healthcare provider. He or she may recommend medications (such as antidepressants) to help with Focalin XR withdrawal and may be able to help with addiction or dependence problems. If you have been taking very high doses of Focalin XR, slowly stopping Focalin XR (decreasing it a little each day) can help to prevent Focalin XR withdrawal symptoms.
