: My doctor recently persuaded me to get on the new Concerta drug. After two weeks of taking it as directed, I am still feeling spaced out and am experiencing large gaps in coverage. I am not really impressed.
: Anyone else having this experience? I am finding it to be even worse than ritalin SR.
Chad, I have only been taking Concerta for three days, but I'm not impressed either. I'm am
feeling spacy and sleepy and haven't seen much improvement in focus. In fact, my dyslexia is
worse than ever. I usually don't have to re-type many words, but I can't get through a more
than two or three words right now without backspacing.
Unless someone has ADD, I don't think they can understand how frustrating it is. I sure wish
there were some sort of medical relief! I'm doing everything with therapy I can, but my psychologist
says that working with someone who has ADD is "like trying to build a house in an earthquake!"
Have you seen an improvement since you posted this comment?
