Common Questions and Answers about Metadate cd how long does it last


Avatar n tn She started failing and the teacher was having major problems with her . She started Metadate CD the last nine weeks of school and she did so much better . I put her back in first grade and it has made a huge difference in her. YOu can also talk about taking him to a behavorly specialest . But i would really wait about putting him on some meds right now . Just way to early for that. But if he responds better with you. Then you try to each him and see what happens.
Avatar m tn I hlave a question, does metadate cd show up on drug screenss and if so what could cause a false negative.? I gave my son his metadate at 6:30am, and at 11am they said he tested negative for it.
Avatar f tn If it is metadate CD it is an Extended release capsules (Metadate CD). If it is metadate ER it is a Sustained release tablets. I really doubt if he is on the immediate release tablet as that would be a huge dose at his age. Your doctor should have made you aware of what he is on - as this is confusing stuff. If he is having trouble sleeping at night I would try cutting back the dosage - as even in the CD or ER form, it is a fairly high dose for a 6 year old.
Avatar f tn The strange thing is, when she first started taking this medicine, things seemed to be going better. The doctor changed it to 15 mg last month, and it seemed as though it was completely taken away. Instead of the increase helping her, it seemed to all of us that we were back to square one. She saw the doctor again last week. I told her I felt this way about the increase, but she insisted that it was best to keep her on the 15 mg of Focalin for another couple of weeks, then take her back again.
Avatar f tn I suggest that the medicine is not the right medicine or it is not enough. I assume that he is taking Metadate CD (8 hour slow release) or something similar such Ritalin? If so, you need to ask the doctor that prescribed the med if you can increase it. You should increase by 5mg at a time until you see that it is enough and it is working. For example, after you talk to the doctor, you would increase the dosage by 5mg (you might have to divide the capsule) for about 4 or 5 days.
Avatar f tn If he really has ADHD, have you tried to give him Ritalin only? Usually Metadate CD (slow release version of the Ritalin ingredient) seems to work better for children than immediate release Ritalin. You can also post on the "expert behavior" forum to the doctor in charge of that forum. Give him examples of the behaviors that your grandchild shows. Also tell him which major city you live close to.
Avatar f tn We eventually tried medication (Metadate CD), and it seemed to help quite a bit. From the very beginning, we noticed him doing funny things like continually licking his lips, or twisting his ears, or moving his foot around, flicking his toes or fingers, etc. We didn't pay much attention to this, as it wasn't an issue, and sometimes we thought he was just trying to be silly. When he was 8 years old he started shaking his head constantly, so we sat up and took notice.
Avatar n tn In fact, Concerta is a once per day dosage that lasts almost 12 hours. It is my understanding that Metadate CD lasts about eight hours and has less side effects than Ritalin. You can Google these names and research the various types of these medications available. Anyway, I am of the opinion that some of the issues that you are having with the Ritalin are related to the dosage being too high and maybe there is a better medicine.
447130 tn?1225474466 Has anyone else had a bad reaction to Vyvanse, if so what was it and how did you resolve it? I'm going to ask my doc if the dose it too high. Has anyone else had unwanted side effects from too high of a dose? Any experience with Vyanse good or bad would be appreciated. Thanks so much for your help, as always!!
Avatar f tn I take medication for ADD and it helps with school soo much idk what I would do without it but I had to try a couple of different types of pills before I found one that worked with my body and didn't cause side effects. Maybe trying something other than riddelin and work untill you find one he's happy on.
Avatar n tn Talk to your doctor about trying a shorter timing drug such as Metadate CD which is only 6 to 8 hours in span (and do not give him too much in quantity). Good luck.
