Question Concerta and Fatigue

Help - I'm new to taking ADHD meds and was prescribed Concerta ER 27mg. After two days on this med, i became extremely fatigued and had some feelings similar to PMS. Is this something that will ever go away? I also take Paxil CR 50mg for anxiety/ depression (3 yrs) and have been very happy with the results.

I just switched from Adderall 15mg twice a day to Concerta ER 27mg and have been really tired the last two days also. I am not sure if this is a common side affect for new users but I hope it goes away. I work six 14 hour shifts followed by three days off so fatigue is not an option. I switched from the Adderall thinking I might have better results with an extended release formulation. My doc thought the concerta might be a good fit but I worried about the dose and thought 27mg might be a little light after being on the 30mg Adderall.

Re: Concerta and Fatigue

I went back and checked the medication chart I have been useing for research and under common side effects the number one listed is insomnia nothing about fatigue. Hopefully someone else can shed some light on this.
