Concerta is a brand-name for the drug methylphenidate. Methylphenidate is a central nervous stimulant; in most countries, methylphenidate is a controlled substance and carries penalties for obtaining or taking without a prescription from a licensed doctor.
Concerta can cause an allergic reaction in individuals, even if the past they have had no reactions: symptoms include hives, difficulty breathing, swelling of the face, tongue, lips, or throat. In the event of an allergic reaction, seek medical help immediately.
Stop taking Concerta and consult your physician immediately if you have a serious side effect such as:
Less serious side effects that have been reported include: headache or dizziness, sleep problems, dry mouth, sweating, mild skin rash, numbness, loss of appetite, and weight loss.

i would not advise taking any concerta while taking lexapro. I am currently taking lexapro and have taken concerta about 7 times. Each time i took concerta i would hear many scary voices in my head. i looked up the psycotic effects of concerta and they said that a side effect of concerta is hearing voices if you are on an antidepressant
Yes it does, I am 19 and I have been taking concerta since I was about 13. It makes it harder to get and keep an erection. Also, now that I have been taking it for awhile, when I forget to take it I get uncontrollable erections. It is probably the main reason I got through school but It left me with a lot of psychological effects.
St. John's wort not only can cause a sunlight sensitivity but should also not be used in children under the age of 12. Additionally it's contraindicated in conjugation with concerta. It can actually worsen ADHD if taken with concerta. Other side effects are still unknown and it is suggested to avoid consuming both.
If you are using Prozac and Strattera together, you need to talk to your doctor, as this combination can cause serious side-effects. Read your Patient Insert that came with your Straterra, it covers the use of Prozac and Straterra together. Hope that helps. Concerta is being passed around my school. . .most people think that if you take it you will be hyper and more alert. . .this may be the case in some people. . .however for some people side effects are great and horrible. . .I took 2 Concerta and got light-headed first, then the dizzyness came and the stomach aches. . .dry throat but too much saliva in your mouth. . .uncontrolable shaking and definite insomnia. . .loss of appitie and hallucinations. . .i am not a trained physician. . .but because of my size the side effects were very different that they are for most. . .the other 2 that took it with me were perfectly fine, yet another person that took the same amount claims his heart stopped. . .i would NOT recomend using this drug. . .its side effects SUCK
all you need for adhd is concerta, but concerta can make you jittery and give you an all around weird jumpy feeling like as if you were smoking crack or speed. so it wont help your adhd any better but the vicodan might calm you down if you expience those effects. if its those "speedy" effects of concerta that bother you consider switching to adderall rather than methyphenidate , i have found concerta to make you more jittery and stuff than adderall . as for the safety of this mixture dont quote me on this but if you keep your does'es low you'll be fine
