This was given to my 7 year old daughter for ADHD, she also has Fragile X. This medication caused her to hallucinate, she went 24 hours without sleep and was extremely emotional. We were told to stop the medicine immediately.

I have been using Concerta for nearly 10 years now. It has really helped me in school (concentrating in class, getting my work done, organization, rule following.) However, the loss of appetite and the drying of the mouth has always been hard for me to deal with. I am very thankful for what the medicine has helped me do, but at the same time I have to admit that it is often hard to imagine func ...

We will be taking him off this and trying another medication. This has been ve ...

I thought vyvanse was great, but I noticed hives on my hands initially and disregarded the reaction. It wasn't until I had hives (large) all over my face, severe dry eye, for a month, I realized I was having a reaction to the drug. My own physician did not relate the hives to the drug. I had to figure it out myself after spending hundreds of dollars on copays to the eye doctor and revisits to m ...

I have been taking this drug for a couple of weeks. At first, the side effects and positive effects are immense. My brain was able to pick up anything at anytime, I never had this ability before. Whenever I walk to school, I would notice the flowers, sidewalk, other people, rather than just be hidden in my own cloud. School definately has become easier. I now focus in class, get things that need t ...

My grandson takes this medication for ADHD. They up the doseage, ever since then he has uncontrolable head movement. He jerks his head forward. Is this a system of the meds? He has never done this before.
