It might not be completely right...Most people say you cannot speed off of concerta, but it all depends on how many you take. If you take a normal dosage for someone your age with ADHD, it will probably do close to nothing, except for probably insomnia.
On the other hand, if you take double, triple, or four times the amount, then yes, it will make you speed.
In fact, if you take to much of any pill it will have some affect. Even if you take A LOT of ibuprofen's you can hollucinate.

Experimenting with drugs is however very dangerous.
This may kill off your liver and kidneys even if you do not die right away.

The medication varies for most people. I take strattera, fish oil, and concerta. The amounts will also vary depending on age, weight, and other factors.

I am uncertain of strattera and concerta are Class A drugs or not, but you can only take this medicine if prescribed by a doctor.

What happens if I don't take my Concerta regularly?

What can help ADD people sleep?

Lower your dose of medication. If that doesnt work, you probly dont have really bad adhd. Having horrible and newly discovered adult adhd, I have been on concerta, adderall and vyvnase. I started at 18mg concerta and wasnt satisfied with my focus until I got bumped up to 70mg Vyvanse. I take 70mg everyday and i am able to take naps throughout the day, and go to bed normally. Through my experience, being a college student, i have seen people (who are not prescribed) take 30mg aderall to study and not be able to sleep for 2-3 days. If this is the case for you, you dont need it. If you have bad adhd you could take a 30mg Aderall or a 70mg Vyvanse at 7am and be yawning by 12pm. Even the first time i ever took aderall, i was able to sleep normally, which is how i actually discovered i had adhd. Adhd meds can help anyone focus, but theyre meant to help the people who cant focus without them

What happens if you take 54 mg Concerta and you don't have ADHD?

You may find you have a good mood and good energy or you may feel too "hyped up" and have tense muscles. Concerta is active in your body for 8 to 12 hours, so it's not a good choice of recreation drug - if you have unpleasant side effects (headache, over-stimulation), they will not be easing up very fast.

My son was on concerta he was taking 38mg it worked for him but he has ADD. The more they take is a very bad thing. I would take sugar out of there diet and red #40 food coloring out and go to health food store and get Attention and give it to them 3 times a day over the summer and see how they do. Doctors just want to drug them and you lose your kids. If you need me I"m here for any one I have done my homework!

Taking any amount of a level 2 narcotic without prescription is very dangerous. One 36 mg dose of this medicine is normally used for young boys an adults. It is advised to seek medical help if you are not prescribed Concerta by an actual doctor and have taken it.If you are prescribed Concerta and accidentally or on purpose take more than one dosage please call 911 or seek the emergency room for immediate help. I advise any and all people of any age to not take medications not prescribed to you.
