My advise is to get your son off this medication ASAP. Concerta is a methylamphetamine and
is a controlled substance. If a dope dealer gave this drug to your son, he could expect to be
spending years in prison. Have him reevaluated by a competent psychologist. Then consult with
a behavior specialist.
If you keep your son on this drug, you can expect that he has a good chance of
losing weight, have his neurological development harmed and develop tics and touretts syndrome.
He also will become addicted to this drug and probably experiment with other drugs as he
I have personally seen enough horror stories to make me sick...
Instead get him on a good behavior mod program.
I will look like he is getting better, that is the placebo effect. When he starts spacing out from the
drug. You will know that what I am telling you is true.
The damage would have aleady begun.
