Daytrana is a convenient new method of administering medicine proven to improve children's ADHD symptoms. In a long-acting patch form, Daytrana dispenses methylphenidate steadily through a child's skin in order to avoid changes in blood levels caused by ADHD medications administered orally. Easily removable, the Daytrana patch makes management and adaptation easy for both the child and their parents. Daytrana allows for much less disturbance of eating and sleeping habits.
Daytrana is a medication that is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The drug is formulated with ingredients that help in increasing the ability to pay attention and stay focused. Daytrana will also help the patient to organize daily tasks and boost listening skills. The inability to pay attention is a result of some chemical imbalance in the brain. Daytrana works by changing the amount of that chemical or natural substance in the brain to strike the balance. This is when the patient will start behaving normally. If you had used MAO inhibitors in the last two weeks, do not use this medication. You should not use Daytrana if you have severe anxiety, tension, agitation, or glaucoma.
