I'm glad it's not the Focalin since you seemed to be really want it to work- but do you have any idea what it was? I'm still a bit mystified by my own itchiness during times of stress and/or lack of sleep because I've never met anyone else who had that specific reaction. Do you think it was stress or not enough sleep that caused your itchiness? Or maybe you just had to get used to the Focalin? Also, how is the Focalin working out for you so far? Thanks for any info.


> > Last night, I had my last dose of Focalin at about 3pm, wast itchy 'til seven, took 50mg diphenhydramine, went to bed, and woke up o.k.--no itchiness. at ten, I took a focalin (10mg) and it's now ten to eleven and i'm just starting to feel the little beginnings of itch in different places on my body. They invariably get more itchy until i scratch, and then they disappear and come back elswhere mostly. I think I'll call my pdoc and just switch back to Ritalin, which worked well but was losing effectiveness--i'll just up the dose. Arghhh.
> Wait, it's not the Focalin. The itchiness stopped more or less, and now I'm finding 30mg divided doses to be optimal.
