I am 40, and my oldest son is 10. We were both just diagnosed with ADHD non-attentive type. We have no hyperactivity to calm down, so we can't use that as a measuring stick. I feel like the blind leading the blind!

We started Concerta 2 weeks ago. My body is more active and I do seem to be able to focus a little better, but how do I know when to stop raising the dosages? My son is talking non-stop , but we've seem no improvement in his school work, and I think it's helping me a little, but I still am EASILY distracted and forget what I'm doing, and I have seen no improvement in Ethan at all.
OH, he is at 27mg and I am taking 45mg of Concerta.

Q: Are with not taking enough?
Q: What is it supposed to feel like when it's "the right dose"?
Q: What does TOO much feel like?
Q: How do we know if we should try something else (adderal is our second choice, Strattera did not seem like the right medication for us)?

Please, if a few of you could share your experiences with us or try to answer those questions for me I might be able to get a better idea of what we are shooting for!! I've spent 40 years thinking like this, how inthe world am I supposed to figure out what "normal" thinking is???

Sincerely, Fuzzybrain
