I take Concerta 54 mg for Adult ADD. I know it is a stimulant. So unless you intend to be up all night do not take it before bed. Although it might be an idea if you work 3rd shift. (Keeps you awake) Even during the day it is meant to keep you awake. It does pretty good for me. It keeps my mind from wandering all the time. Even while I was making dinner, my mind would be off in never, never land. With the Concerta, I can concentrate better. Before the Concerta, it was a wasted effort to even try. I don't know what the side effects are supposed to be. I haven't looked that up. But I know it works for me. HOWEVER I must caution you to be extremly careful and take it only as your Dr tells you. If you aren't sure, or if you can't remember if you took it or not, you're better off safe than sorry. Just don't take anymore until the next day or unitl you can buy a pill box. :-) +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

this is my first post on this site. I have a not-unheard-of but frown apon story. I am not going to write some long story. .... But to answer to question..... I was just prescribed concerta today. But unfortunatly, I used to be on Ritalin SR..... but I was on concerta before also before that... long ago..

My take on concerta is .... The following will make sense to you if you feel you are taking 1. HaVE you ever been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD or FASD or (FAS) ? if yes ... then you probably been prescribed it.. 2/ If you have a genetic predepostion towards Alcoholism it would be a good idea to go to a rehab even though you don't think you have problem.

3. Never take it if you are not prescribed it, cause it a extremely slow atcing pill........
