    My 7 year old started taking this 3 months ago in the afternoons because his Concerta would ware off too soon, this has made homework time possible. I was worried about adding another medication to him but it has worked great and he hasn't had any side effects from it.

    My son 9 years old has been on Concerta for 5 months and within the first week he showed so much improvement on his school and homework patterns. It's helped build up his self-esteem and he feels very proud of himself and likes going to school. So far no side effects for him. I wish I would have started this treatment years ago.
