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.
