I have been taking concerta for 3 years now, and while it has helped my studying, it is extremely difficult to come off of.

Concerta is just an easy fix for lousy parenting, but what most of these pa ... Show Full Comment

I started taking Concerta 36mg June of 2005. I lost about 15 lbs, which I was happy about but I turned into a psychotic b*tch who would flip out and cry over nothing.
