Elizabeth said:: I know that on the Concerta website it states that if cut it doesn’t release slow ly and may affect how you respond to it or whether you get the 10 to 12 hours.
I’d be happy with 10 – 12 minutes. I noticed when I cut open the pill, it was tightly packed with white powder. The out shell was pretty thick. No wonder I wasn’t able to split it with my fingers. Before experimenting, I did ask my GP about other possible meds. He basically said here’s your Concerta script, keep taking your anti-depressants and I’ll talk to you in 2 weeks. With so many meds available, how does he know which to use or which one is good for me? I don’t think Concerta is the ‘right’ med as Im still having trouble focusing on the task at hand.
Fearwidg, that noise you hear is EXACTLY the same one I hear. 24-7. I’ve noticed tonight it’s much louder at night than during the day. Left side especially. Ive been able to sometimes use it to my advantage. At times, I can ‘listen’ to it and use it to help me get to sleep. I’ve tried white noise mp3’s that ive been able to download off the web… they also kinda work, but only sometimes. Its more hit and miss. I like listening to ocean surf, its very relaxing and can put me to sleep in no time. Brown noise also works. I find it difficult to find on the web as a freebie. There’s tons of stuff you can buy, but what for… It’s more fun looking for it and satisfies the ADD urge to always have some tech toy attached to your hip. ;0)
