I’m using Concerta as well but it doesn’t seem to work for me, I’m just following the Doctors orders even though I’m growing very impatient, I want it to work now! I know she is trying to fix me up but waiting a week or two to me is like telling a kid that Santa will be here in a few days, mean while the kid is rolling around on the floor barely able to contain themselves. I do my best though and I try to stay away from everyone which comes naturally. I must say that I have cheated and tried a larger dose 72 mgs. It didn’t do anything, just made my ears ring a little more. I’m not recommending that anyone adjust their medication, but I just have a really hard time with patients when it comes to doing something. I can’t seem to do anything myself but I expect everyone else to get it done now. I’m very aware of the way I am now and that has been my biggest help thus far. Try not to be like me and follow your Doctors orders. There is one thing about this that I find kind of funny. After 12 hours I feel tired, that’s a good thing because sleeping for me is a major challenge. I wake up several times a night and the sheets on my bed are always off the mattress when I wake. Come to think of it the elastic on the bottom sheet on my side are always broken.
