My daughter just started taking concera a week ago. This is her second week and she is feeling like a zombie. She is 16 years old. Can anyone talk to me and give advice ## This can be a normal side effect, while her body is adjusting to the medication, however, it should taper off in a few more weeks as her body gets used to it. If it is really causing her a problem, you may want to contact her doctor, for advice. There is always the chance that she is on the wrong dosage or wrong medication to help her. Are there any comments or questions? ## I was told by a doctor that if they are on a too high a dose, they will act like a zombie. I think the dose is too high. ...

My son has been taking 18 mg of Concerta for a month, he is 6 years old. Since his mood is much more stable, he is less emotional and seems to focus more. He is also less obsessive about things he was before. He seems more able to play alone and doesn't always look for a friend. He has a little less appetite but he sleeps well and doesn't have other side effects. Overall Concerta is helping him. ...

I have a 14 yo son and a 13 yo daughter that are both on 54 mg of concerta and straterra.My daughter is doing very good.But my son is not good on his meds ## My 5 yo son was on 54 mg of Concerta and it didn't seem to be working so the doctors put him on 30 mg or ritalin and that seems to be helping a little bit but he is still very hyper and still has a problem staying on task for longer than 15 mins, but he also has bipolar disorder. I never thought that they could diagnos a child that young but i am glad that i had him tested because it is helping a little bit but not as much as I thought that it would. ## First I would like to state this is only my opinion based on personal experiences and various observations. I am not a professional by ANY MEANS. I am a 17 year old Junior at Ta... ...

concerta 36
1 Reply RSS
I need to know what the difference is with the two sides on the inside of a Concerta 36? Is it 2 separate drugs that make it what it is because I was told one side was the actual methylphenidate and the other side was a blood pressure drug? Someone know is addicted to abusing pills or anything else it seems and I told him to not to misuse this pill, because I was also told it could kill a person if it's taken the wrong way. Can someone help me explain this pill to him so he can read for himself from someone else what's exactly going on because he thinks I'm joking about it and I just don't want him to die for making the wrong decision. Seriously as fast as you can possibly respond would be helpful. Thank you for your time in advance. ## Hello, Lee! How are you? No, there... ...

Concerta Er
1 Reply RSS
I've been taking Amphetamine Salts 30mg for about 2 years, this had been great for the depression but it sur- pressed my appetite and effected my taste buds so drastically, I had no interest in food whatsoever. Then my physician suggested concerta ER, but that didn't seem to do much for my depression. ## Well neither of them are actual antidepressants, they are actually stimulant medications that are normally used to treat conditions such as ADHD and narcolepsy. Learn more Amphetamine Salts details here. Learn more Concerta details here. So, it's normal for them to cause appetite suppression, but they don't usually help much with depression, because they can cause irritability, so that will actually backfire in some people. Have you tried any actual antidepressants? ...

Can I take 2-18mg of Concerta to equal my 36mg. I ran out of my 36mg and I have 4 18mg from previous script ## Hello, Lois! How are you? Yes, that should be fine, as long as your doctor approves. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, nervousness and insomnia. This medication also carries the risk of being habit forming. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

What are the effects if the dosage of Concerta is too high?
1 Reply RSS
Our 17 year old is taking 54 mg of Concerta 1x a day. The past few weeks she has been/had weepy, irritable, dizzy, headaches, increased sweating, trouble sleeping and loss of appetite/nausea. She spikes with extreme anger and just seems to be much more agitated. Are these symptoms of her dose being too high? She has been on this dosage for over a year? Concerta has been given to her for almost 2 yrs. Thanks! ## Hello, Jennifer! How are you? Yes, it could be, unless you have reasons to suspect that she may be doing some other type of drug. Another alternative could be hormonal changes, she is at the right age for another shift in them to occur. Has her doctor been consulted? ...

I been on methylphenidate now for 7 years my psychiatrist has been prescribing it to me now for 7 years and for me taking concerta is like putting on a pair of shiny clean glasses and I can see more clearly. I was on 36mg concerta and thought I might ask my dr to drop the dose to see if I could get more out of it and I did I have now been on 27mg concerta and I have noticed a massive improvement I'm not so jittery, impulsive, don't talk as much as I used to, my behaviour is more mature and I feel so proud of myself. It's been 4 months now on the dose drop fr 36mg to 27mg and i feel more like myself again and the concerta helps me to focus concentrate and function with my add ## Wow, Claudia!

Dropped concerta in dish water ??
1 Reply RSS
I had the sink full of dishes and dropped my daughter's pills everywhere. .. thought I had found them all but apparently one pill fell in the dish water... I washed and dried the dishes before I realized the pill was in the dish water. Should I be re washing all those dishes again? ## Hello, Ladygem! How are you? It is highly unlikely that with the dish detergent and drying any of the medication would be on them in enough amounts to affect anyone. It wouldn't hurt to give them an extra rinse to be safe, if you prefer, though. I will also add that I am not a doctor, so it's always best to double check such information to be careful. You may want to make sure that you inform her doctor of what happened, to ensure she doesn't run out early, before her next refill is due. Th... ...
