Morning!

I’m an adult, and felt the same thing when I was studying and working long days.. the Concerta would taper off mid-shift in the evening and then I couldn’t get a handle on busy bar orders. Strattera isn’t commonly prescribed in Australia, so we came up with the idea of adding 10mg immediate release Ritalin around 6pm, so I would remain medicated long enough to finish work and get home. Worked a charm! Also, because I’d had a full and productive day I was usually able to slide into bed happy without churning thoughts. And it saves introducing a new drug with potential side effects. Good luck with you and your sweet girl!
