    I've discovered that the best way to take this medication is every day in the am. The earlier the better, if you don't drink enough fluids it won't work.

    Around the age of 6 I've taken Concerta. I'm now 17. Let me tell you that this is a very helpful drug for concentration and the only bad thing about it is when you forget to take it. I ran out during a camping trip for a week and a half and faced suicidal thoughts and felt as if I wasn't really there. My heart felt like I was being stabbed and just a horrifying experience. I forget to ... Show Full Comment

    Concerta has actually helped me with school so much and I'm very grateful. I'm 20 years old and I've only taken it for a little over 5 months and I've been on deans list and my teachers dont hate me anymore for being distracted on my computer or talking all class. However I do have to say that when I forget to take it... It's the worst depression I've ever experienced in my ... Show Full Comment
