My kids have taken concerta and it helped them a lot with the anxiety end of things as well as helping them focus. I was on ritalin, both regular and SR as a teenager and as an adult and it also helped with all the symptoms. I found out I have narcolepsy a few years ago and the medication I take for that also works for my ADD. We also had allergy testing done by a physician certified for environmental medicine. We found out we’re allergic to the 7 “hidden” food allergens: Dairy, corn, egg, wheat, yeast, soy and coconut. We’re also allergic to glycerine which is considered a chemical allergy. Once all these items were out of our diet, my kids found they did not need the high doses of concerta anymore. Good luck to you!
