Dr. J. I have been diagnosed with ADD and I have been prescribed Concerta (18 mg) I have been on it for the past 3 weeks. I am far from my new psychiatrist so I am not able to give him quick feedbacks. I used to take Ritalin sporadicly and it did work but my body metabolized it too quickly and we got started on Conceta. At the 18 mg dose, I am not feeling any changes other than suppression of appetite (slight) and barely noticeable “comfort” on not so demanding days. Is it time to call him up and try to increase the dose? (I am a healthy male in early 30’s with no other health issues)
