Concerta intially caused loss of appetite for me which didn't last nearly as long as I would have liked it to. For me, it was probably just a couple of weeks but then, very few things interfere with my appetite, unfortunately! Also, for the first couple of weeks, I could feel myself come "down" from it in the late afternoon causing some irritability and a "rebound" increase in the ADD symptoms. That, too, passed fairly quickly and is no longer a problem.

My 14yo son takes Strattera. He, unlike me, loses his appetite easily and Strattera caused a PROFOUND loss of appetite for him. It continued for him until we added a small dose of Metadate (a long acting form of Ritalin). Interestingly, his appetite is much better with the combination. Strattera caused a lot of sleepiness for him in the beginning (and with dose increases) which caused him to be irritable. That didn't last long.
