You write very well for someone who is 12 years old. I am glad that you wrote in. Please tell your parents right away about your thoughts of suicide. If a family doctor or a pediatrician is prescribing your concerta, then he or she can consider consulting with a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist is a doctor who specializes in helping people with these types of problems.
Sometimes people can have side effects to medications. Some of the possible side effects with Concerta can include decreased appetite, weight loss and blurred vision. If you have extreme mood swings and depression your parents need to tell your doctor right away. Sometimes irritability can also occur and this is even more serious if you are not able to sleep or you develop a whole lot of energy.
