Smile My daily meds

Hello,
I just started taking concerta again for adhd and have been taking abilify and zoloft for bipolar 1 . I am very happy with my mood stabilizers ( the abilify and zoloft ) and have decided to switch from adderall to concerta this month. I have not had much luck with adderall since it is very addictive and makes you angry & jittery. I have had much more success with concerta !
what is the usual dose you take of concerta for adhd symptoms ?
I am on 54 mg 1x daily of it, and have been told this is a higher than average doseage by a reputable source.

Re: My daily meds

The established therapeutic range for Concerta is 18-72mg/day. As for the 'average,' I couldn't say.
