Yes: Concerta , as a stimulant, can indeed affect your sleep and can also causes or increase feelings of anxiety. You are on a fairly hefty dose for an adult, and it may be your dose needs adjustment so you are not experiencing so much side effect and still get the benefit you need for your condition.

How long does Prozac (fluoxetine) 20mg take to have an effect if i have been taking concerta 36 mg for a month and previously on Adderall ir15mg  1month ?

But take it regularly and I've it a chance. also talk with your doctor if things don't seem to be working ...Read more

What are the best ways to reduce Concerta tolerance? Have been taking 36 mg for almost three years.

What are the best ways to reduce Concerta tolerance? Have been taking 36 mg for almost three years.

Tolerance?: Tolerance isn't a given. You might simply not be at the dose you need. Did you switch from brand-name to generic, or from one generic to another? Their bioavailabilities may differ.

OSA interferes with benefits to ADD from Concerta. ...Read more
