: Hi Chad
: Glad to hear you are feeling better.
: Tell me - what is the rebound like? My doc kept me on the dexedrine spansules, which I find to have a bad rebound effect. I have tried Adderall too and I could never get the dosing right.
: : I am 27 years old and being treated for adult add. I have been on concerta for over six weeks now.
: : The doctor started me on the 18mg tablets, which seemed to not be very effective. I upped the dosage to two 18mg tablets, (36mg), but I still didn't achieve the desired effect.
: : I justed started taking the single 36 mg tablet today and it seems to be working much better.
: : Many doctors will tell you there is no difference between taking two 18s and the single 36 mg tab, but I think there is (based on my personal experience). So far, the 36 mg tab is not very different from 10 mg ritalin tablets.
: : Sometimes the drug doesn't seem as effective as the regular tablets, but the rebound is less severe.
: : As far as your doc switching all ritalin patients over to concerta, this may not or may not be the best thing. My own doctor says Concerta has worked out better for some people, but not for others.
: : I will post more messages about the drug as time goes on, as I'm sure others will.
: : Take care and good luck.
: : Let me know how the concerta goes!
I have a young son who is on ritalin - He was doing very well - It seems lately he has grown a tolerance to the ritalin, the doctor just prescribed the concerta for him. Not having ADD myself but becoming well read I am concerned about a drug that is just being used - I am really unfamilar with this term re-bound. I would really like to know what it is and should I be worried about another potential problem - Please help me by explaining re-bound - Thank you ..
