I just starting concerta today and couldn’t tell if it made a difference for me or not. I am only on 18mg, when you first started taking concerta how could you tell if it was working?REPORT ABUSESeptember 11, 2011 at 4:36 am #108153

Two meds at a time make it more difficult to separate the independent/combined effects.
I find I do better on go/no-go and stop signal tests with Concerta (54mg) than without.REPORT ABUSESeptember 11, 2011 at 5:55 pm #108156

You sound like me a week ago!!! – I posted what was going on in another thread. “Quick Concerta Survey” i think…
Basically I called my Dr and asked to double up – take 36mg of Concerta. He gave me the go ahead. After that there was not much improvement, but my side effects were terrible. I saw him on Friday and he said it wasn’t worth to go through all the side effects and switched me to another med.
If you do increase it will be interesting to hear if it worked well for you – I know everyone has totally different reactions with all of these ADHD meds.
Good luck!REPORT ABUSEFebruary 2, 2012 at 5:06 am #108157

As redic as this sounds, im slightly jealous if ur side effects. I was taking either 54 or 56idk some weird yet high dkse and i felt broken. i mean like i couldnt be fixed or couldnt detect molecules of stuff floatinf in my nliid. I just took one every day and went about my day asif i took nothing. ive had greater reactiins from a multivitamin. Only thing i felt was thag reluctant “back to the drawing board” feelingREPORT ABUSE
