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).
