Apparently 60mgs Methylphenidate as with Dexedrine-WTF? Dex=2x strength Methylphenidate, is the max daily reccomended dosage.

I would not worry about your dose of Focalin, I was scripted 20mgs Q.I.D Ritalin daily last month, so it varies, on response and weight etc.

Whatever works for you with acceptable SEs, and Doc complience.
