Re: Concerta

I've been on it for the last month for ADHD (supposedly). I've been angry/snappy and depressed since. I want to try not taking it for a while. Can I just stop taking it or do I have to "ween" off. Anyone? Thanx

Re: Concerta

My 8yr old son had been on Concerta for 2yrs and his ped. said it was ok to take him off cold turkey... I would definetely speak with your doctor, but he was able to stop without any side effects...

If you're taking more than one a day, I would probably taper it down. Since you've only been taking it for about a month, you should be able to do this fairly quickly. If you're only taking 18mg, stopping probably won't be a problem.

Good luck!
