Concerta: I assume when you started Concerta you started at a much lower dose & went up over mos-yr to 54mg. While holding for a few days is often helpful (only if recommended by your prescribing provider), restarting can cause many symptoms due to such a high dose given for '1st time' again since technically completely out of the body in 4-5 (3.5 hrs x5) half lives. If recurs or worsens may seek attention.

Need more info: Your presentation suggests that other things are going on in addition to the adhd, which I hope was carefully diagnosed. Nausea and sleepiness are not typical symptoms of adhd. Concerta is more likely to produce insomnia than sleepiness, although it sometimes can cause nausea. Some of your symptoms sound like withdrawal symptoms? It is important to avoid self-medicating- even occasionally.

I'm having nausea with Strattera 100mg. I start from once to twice a day. I'm on Ritalin 40-60 mg per day too. How long it will take nausea to go away?

Possible dose effect: With the Ritalin and Strattera at those doses, you are taking a fair amount of medication. The nausea may be a result of the fact that you are on high doses of both medications. I would talk to your doctor about how to reduce one or both of the doses of those medications to see whether that helps with the nausea.

On ritalin (methylphenidate) 6 months just started getting mild daily nausea. Would switching to Adderall help?

On ritalin (methylphenidate) 6 months just started getting mild daily nausea. Would switching to Adderall help?

Would look for a: Different cause nausea first. It would be unusual for the nausea to start this late in treatment. The G.I. Side effects usually start at the very beginning of treatment and last briefly and then go away. I wouldn't expectit to start six months in. Please meet with your family doctor and look for another cause. I don't think that switching medications would be a good idea necessarily at this time. Best wishes.

40mg Ritalin in morning. Had migraine so 2advils & 2 paracetamols. Then 8mgzofran for nausea. A few hrs later again 8mg Zofran (ondansetron). Feel very sick. Overdose?

Describe sick.: Is migraine your diagnosis or professional's.? You were sick before you took all meds except Ritalin (methylphenidate). Did your headache get worse or your nausea? Your resistance to pain relief can suggest tolerance. Unless other meds or substances are involved you are at higher risk for drug-drug interactions than OD. If your symptoms persist or worsen consider a visit to your ER or urgent care.

I used to take ritalin (methylphenidate). I would take a break from them and would experience extrem fatigue, nausea and brain fog for a few days. Why did this happen?

Ritalin (methylphenidate): Methyl Phenidate is a stimulant, and being off of it can lead to withdrawal symptoms from lowering of excess adrenaline, as you described physically. Such symptoms are usually mild & short-lasting.

Ok was wondering if Concerta gives you energy?

Ok was wondering if Concerta gives you energy?

Not recommended: The Concerta has been approved for the treatment of ADHD and a few of rather narrow list of conditions. Since it is a stimulant, (noradrenergic), it increases heart rate and output, as well as overall metabolism, mimicking stress (fight and run instinct). This could be mistaken for false high energy). Use of these meds are for ADHD because of target effects mainly in the prefrontal cortex.

Concerta causing tic? What should I do?

Stop: You need to talk to your doctor about stopping the Concerta and taking something else. Other medications, like adderall, Ritalin can also cause tics. Other medications for adhd such as strattera and intuiv and wellbutrin (bupropion) will not cause tics.

What's the difference between "concerta" and adderall"?

Different classes: Concerta is methylphenidate delivered in a sophisticated capsule that uses osmotic pressure to deliver the medication over time. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is a form of amphetamine that is delivered either as immediate release or in beaded form with half released immediately and the second half released 3 1/2 to 4 hours later. Both are stimulants with similar benefits, efficacy, and se.

Is Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) better than concerta for me?

Is Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) better than concerta for me?

Discuss w/your doc: I'm sorry, but we really don't know enough about you to recommend one drug over another for you. The best person to talk about this with, would be your own psychiatrist who knows your full history. Most likely s/he has followed you on these medicines for awhile also? You should ask your doctor about anything you don't understand on prescriptions or reasoning for them. Best wishes.

Should I be taking concerta 18mg if I am allergic to milk?

Should I be taking concerta 18mg if I am allergic to milk?

Huh?: I don't know if I understand the question. If you're asking if Concerta will help your milk allergy, the answer is no. If you're asking if you will be harmed by Concerta because you're allergic to milk, my answer is "i don't see the connection". I want to make sure you understand that Concerta is a prescription medication for adhd, and as far as I know, it has nothing to do with milk or allergy.
