Smile 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.

It should begin working after about an hour. 18mgs is a very low 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i took concerta a while ago and it worked for awhile but when we increased the dose i became very clingly and withdrawn and switched to adderal.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.
