  • We have had to increase Nathan's focalin to 3 times a day so he can get home work done. He also takes Gaba calm with his focalin to help him with irratiblty at school. the benadryl was to help him go to sleep but it isn't working. what can we do he getting in trouble at school since we increased the focalin he's not getting enough rest. I don't think the Gaba Calm is working either.
