teddyg  – thanks for sharing your experiences. You sound like the poster person for Concerta. 🙂

I am completely envious of you. I took it for about a month and had to stop. It increased my focus and was absolutely fantastic – for the first time in a long time I felt motivated.

Sadly it also gave me insomnia, dreadful headaches, a cough, tightness in my chest and extremely high blood pressure and to cap it all I became an anxious wreck prone to tears at work. So the side effects outweighed the good parts.

I am now back to the short release and I like the flexibility. I don’t get the same side effects despite the drug being the same.

If Concerta works for you that’s fantastic. I had a brief taste of its potential and then had to give it up and that sucks.
