... flu on Thanksgiving, and ended up staying up late due to sleeping all day that day. So I thought that was the issue. till he never slept again after that and the anger issues were bad. Once we got sleep under control I thought it would help but it did not. So as of right now sleep school are great. Home life and anger are not. ... (5 replies)

Mar 26, 2004

Sorry you're having trouble! Getting meds right is SOOO frustrating... (3 replies)

... From what I've read, this can happen with any stimulant, which Concerta is. The "leveling out" is merely your brain's ability to adapt to the chemical, usually by shutting down some of it's own stimulating abilities. ... (5 replies)

Concerta?
Jan 5, 2008
... n days that you do not take the medication. The main difference that i noticed in the two is that adderall isnt as well at being effective thru out the day while concerta is a time released pill and it does not cause as bad as mood swings or anger issues. My family was much more please with the concerta then adderall. ... (3 replies)

... In researching ADHD for my son's case, I read somewhere that many doctors felt a stimulant like Concerta should be perscribed with a anti depressant to avoid just what you have noticed. ... (3 replies)
... I currently am taking Adderall XR and I really like it. I am 24 years old so I take a much higher dose but for me it has worked really well! The XR form is very steady and compared to the regular adderall which I used to be on I think that coming off of it is a lot easier.
