We do the “homework dose” of Ritalin 5mg (Concerta in the morning, 36mg) at about 4pm … we actually also do the guanfacine/intuniv in the evening… we arrived her by trial and error and sometimes it feels weird to have so many different meds but it actually works for us which is a sanity saver…. that said, it has been a rough month or so and it may be time for. Achange up… however I wouldn’t recommend switching completely to a non-stimulant (like strattera) if a stimulant is working for a good part of the day. Consider adding or even adjusting the dose of the stimulant… good luck – it is hard for sure!!
