My 8-year old first tried Metadate and then migrated to Concerta. The 36mg dosage seems very effective. Once in a great while he has some difficulty falling asleep, but overall the results are very good. His teacher noticed an immediate difference and, truth be told, the bigger illustration is on days he doesn't take it. The boy drives us crazy... and the hyperactivity element isn't re ...

Concerta is a good drug if you want to be able to focus and keep your mind together. There is just something about it to me that makes me not want to take it but in the end i cant find a reason not to.

Comment:
I am writing as the mother of a 10 year old with ADHD. This drug is very effective but the cost is high. Even with insurance it is costly. Right now I have cut back on my grocery list, shop a cut-rate supermarkets and any other cost saving avenues to pay for this drug.
