I was on it for a few months, it was shit, the negatives outweighed the positives.

But we're all different, so any answers will be useless.

I take concerta, have been for a long time, it's good, the loss of appetite is kind of annoying, although i take migraine medicine every night that kind of unintentionally counter-acts the effect. (Periactin makes you hungrier, concerta makes you less)


P.S. I've also taken Strettera, i know how you feel, it would make me very sleepy as well.

i was on 80mg of stratera and it was useless as well for me. i was also on ritalin and concerta, but to answer your question all of the medicines failed for me because the headaches and the mood swings i had where terrible. This doesn't happen for everyone so do not think that this is your case. I no longer take the meds.

Contact me if you need to talk. I'm always here to help all
you have to do is be honest.

but it did help his ADHD

What are the side effects of Concerta?
-Has it been know to work, or fail?
-does any1 on here take or know any1 that takes it?


the side effects... oh boy.. no sleep, not eating, depression, anxiety increased, i acted like a robot on that stuff, i'm nto sure if that was the one that gave me stomach aches or not, but it did make my heart speed up... wait no that was adderal... every ADD/ADHD med i tried had the above symptoms... however, this does not mean i'm saying do not take meds, i have tried constant medications since the age of 6 each had horrible side effts with the above, but they made me focused, nwo i odn't take meds, i'm myselff, i'm happier, i'm not a robot however meds work differently with everyone don't not take somethign because of seomeone else experience. go to a doctor see what he/she says about it, tell them you are afraid of bad side affects, and try it. have your parents or yourself do some research if the meds apparently have a lot of bad side affects and a lot of people have them don't take it, don't take meds new on the market wait awihle (this is just for precaution sake, because by then everyone knwos the side affects, so if it is killing people, you wont' be killed this of course is an exaggerated example)

i have taken countless of meds for this all prescribed by doctors and i know thsi is obvious, but i feel like i hsould say this anywya but DON'T TAKE MEDS NOT PRESCRIBED BY DOCTOR. hope this helps

Sucked, it made my OCD about ten times worse.


Lets leave the sound of the heat for the sound of the rain
Its easy to sleep when it wets my brain
But restless is causeless and I cannot hide
So much of my mind that it spills outside

Concerta worked great for me, had a few side effects - loss of apetite, trouble sleeping etc, but it didnt last.

I used to take Concerta but I've found I haven't needed it as much. It's slow release so it gave me just enough to pay attention but at the same time it didn't make me feel like a robot like the stronger ones would.

I take concerta and all it does is make me feel not hungry at all,it also affects me a little bit it makes me more emotional idk why....and it made it so I cant sleep well so i take melatonin that helps take it 2 hours b4 bedtime but it does help with your concentration and it helped with my grades so it is better to use even with those side effects

i have been taking concerta since i was diagnosed at age 7. It works for me well enough, but there is a BIG negative extreme loss of appetite, then theres a big loss of energy, but i guess thats supposed to happen, i would take something else, but nothing else will work except 1 im allergic to. I dont reccomend it.
