  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 54 mg/24 hr Daily
Advice & Tips: I try to drink more water than normal in order to prevent headaches. The poor sleep has always been a problem on any stimulant ADD medication. Concerta has the most mild symptoms. I also keep track and schedule my meals to manage the appetite problems. The one thing I like about Concerta is that is helps me focus with out making me feel jittery.
