In Reply to: Re: anyone out there taking concerta? posted by Shannon on August 30, 2000 at 21:26:47:

: : I have just started on a drug called concerta, a new preparation of Ritalin. My doctor seemed impressed with the drug's nifty mechanisms, and in theory it sounds good. However, I am finding it unreliable compared to regular CIBA Ritalin tablets, or even Ritalin SR. Has anyone else tried this drug?

: Hi, I took my first concerta dose today. That's why I am on the internet right now. I am trying to get more information about it. I was taking dexadrine. I liked it, but my doctor too seems to be impressed with this and wanted me to try it. So far I do not like it as much. Of course it is the first day, but I have a headache and have been more deficient in finishing anything today. I am also very angry and frustrated feeling. What are your symptoms? How long have you been on it? What dosage? I take 2 36mg tabs at a.m. I was taking 2 10mg dexadrine a.m.

: These pills cost a fortune in comparison to the others as well! My concerta 180 count was $416. My dexadrine was only $219. I don't have insurance. :(

: So far, not happy with concerta. Please respond back. Thanks

My 11 year old son was just diagnosed with ADD. The doctor started him on 18 mg. Concerta last Friday. I have nothing to compare Concerta to since this is the first medication prescribed, but he is having terrible mood swings approx. 12-14 hrs. after having been given the medication. Has anyone else experienced the problem?
