: My 7 year old son was just diagnosed with ADHD... The doctor put him on Concerta, because of the long lasting effects of the drug... Can someone please tell me what I can expect from him now that he is on this?? I have thought for at least a year that he has ADHD... I am glad that he can finally get some help, but I am still wondering what to expect... Any help will be greatly appreciated....
: TIA, Shelly Be careful what medications you try. My son was diagnosed with ADHD about 7 years ago and they have tried medication after medication and I believe some have more harsh side effects than anyone would ever tell you. Before the meds my son was just hyper and over the years he has become real hard to control and very angry. I think it is side effects from the various meds.
