side effect of concerta?

A variety: All stimulants (concerta just one) have similar side effects. All are dose related and vary by indvidual. Most common are decreased appetite with weight loss, problems getting to sleep, and a slowing of height growth. Other side effects: increased nervousness, motor and vocal tics (if at risk), and rash. All are reversible. Concerns about serious risk to heart have been been debunked.
