My 8 year old son has just started taking Ritalin LA. As he will not take a capsule or tablet, I have been sprinkling it on a sandwich. I have read that it should only be mixed with apple sauce and then swallowed, not chewed. Does anyone know if eating it on a sandwich (which is obviously chewed) will cause any change to its effect? Our doctor hasn't been able to offer any advice on this issue. Thanks.
