What is Focalin?
Focalin (dexmethylphenidate) is prescribed for adults and children over the age of five as a treatment for ADHD. It makes it easier to concentrate, focus despite distractions, and control impulsive behaviors.
Focalin comes in an immediate release form that works for up to five hours and an extended-release version that is effective for up to twelve hours. Both are taken by mouth, with or without food, usually first thing in the morning.
What does Simplefill Provide?
While we usually think of ADHD as affecting only children, it is also common among adults, many of whom were never diagnosed as children. It’s a neurodevelopmental disorder that manifests in children as daydreaming, forgetfulness, disorganization, lack of attention to details, physical restlessness, difficulty getting along with peers, acting without thinking about consequences, impulsive behavior, and inability to resist temptation. The same symptoms can persist into adulthood, resulting in trouble maintaining employment or social relationships.
It takes an uninterrupted supply of Focalin to keep ADHD under control. Whether you’re worried about being able to pay for your own Focalin prescription or your child’s, Simplefill understands your concerns. You can count on us to serve as a bridge connecting you to the prescription assistance programs that can greatly reduce the cost to you.
How Does Focalin Work?
Focalin is a stimulant that works by preventing the reabsorption (reuptake) of dopamine into the cells in the brain’s reward system that release it. The different parts of the brain that make up this reward system rely on dopamine, a neurotransmitter, to communicate with each other. Dopamine helps a person regulate emotional responses and contributes to feelings of pleasure and reward. The connection between dopamine levels and ADHD is not fully understood, but Focalin has been proven to be effective in controlling the condition.
