That said, earlier puberty often ensues which further advances bone age and can limit final height potential. Losing weight may help to slow things down, at least not to further accelerate the maturation process. ...Read more

Nutrition & exercise: Good nutrition & regular exercise are key to getting healthy. While mediterranean diet has most evidence supporting its benefits, it may not be applicable to all religions & cultures. But general principles are same. Be sure to expend more energy than you consume to gradually lose fat weight. Aim for 500cal/d deficit = 1 lb/wk loss. Talk to your family doc to be sure you're otherwise healthy. ...Read more

Diet and exercise: If your thyroid has been tested and is normal you need instruction from a registered dietitian and programs like weight watchers will also help. Sometimes counseling is helpful. There is no diet pill that doesn't have potential side effects and they only work as long as you take them. Try working with diet and exercise, it's something you can live with. ...Read more

I was prescribed concerta for my add. I'm concerned about weight loss. How much am i likely to lose if i'm at a healthy weight for my height ?

I was prescribed concerta for my add. I'm concerned about weight loss. How much am i likely to lose if i'm at a healthy weight for my height ?

Disappointed: Most adult women who take Concerta (or any other stimulant for that matter) for adhd are disappointed they don't lose weight like their kids do. Some patients who overeat impulsively will lose an appropriate amount of weight. But that's about it. Adults usually require lower stimulant doses than children by weight to achieve normalcy, and their metabolism is slower so less weight loss. ...Read more
