Most flu bugs last a day or two. So either it's a severe stomach problem (doubtful) or it's withdrawal, not the flu. (6 replies)
... Hi - I'm wondering if anyone knows if there are any withdrawal effects associated with Concerta? My 8 year-old step daughter has been taking it (36mg) for about one year for ADHD.

... o this board, too. I was diagnosed in 98 in college. I took regular ritalin and it was wonderful for what I needed at the time. I don't even know if there was Concerta then.
