ADHD- Concerta? - April 21st 2010, 03:31 AM

Hey everyones,

I have been on concerta for.. Almost a year a think? For ADHD.

Basically I was just curios to see if anyone else takes this, and how /if it's helped? Also like, did you get side effects?

So, just a curiosity thread xD

i used to take concerta, i found it helped me concentrate more than the ritalin did, i didnt mind the concerta as i only had to take one in the moring and that was it, none of that taking ritalin to school and stuff. i also felt alot calmer on the concerta.

I used to take 36 mg when I was 13. Huge effects. I actually started cutting when I was on it so they eventually took me off. I felt like it was controlling my behavior

Now, at 17, They put me back on it...same dose. I dont notice a difference. It depends on your age I guess.

I took concerta when i was first diagnosed with ADD. I was only on it for about a year & I hated it. I always got horrible headaches.. the only thing thats actually worked well for me is adderall.
