Yes, one of the possible side effects of Focalin XR is headaches. I've taken it for over four years now and have somewhat concluded (for me atleast) that stress plays a major role in causing a headache-not a normal headache though, a bit stronger, not too fun at all--this is especially so when you have your concentration broken when trying to complete something (ex:trying to complete a project at work and a fellow co-worker begins to bug you in some way)-small things like that have caused major headaches lasting for hours.
Make sure you get proper sleep as well-a lack of sleep causes them from too much stress on the brain. Hope this helped somewhat,
