I started taking Methylphenidate ER (Concerta) 18mg today
 
I am going to record my feelings to figure out I this medication works. I took it at 12pm today and right now it's 12:43pm. I don't feel anything out of the ordinary. If anyone takes this medication please comment and tell me how it made you feel or if it worked for you.:wave:

It should begin working after about an hour. 18mgs is a very low dose....you may not have any effect. Give it a week though, recording your feelings etc is a very good idea, it will help you and your doctor with your dose level, one which I would be willing to bet will go up soon. Take care and try to be patient, it can get frustrating... this ll just takes time.

i took concerta a while ago and it worked for awhile but when we increased the dose i became very clingly and withdrawn and switched to adderal. so i would be careful when increasing your dosage.

The medicine may not work at all.
