In brief: A variety
All stimulants (concerta just one) have similar side effects.
All are dose related and vary by indvidual. Most common are decreased appetite with weight loss, problems getting to sleep, and a slowing of height growth. Other side effects: increased nervousness, motor and vocal tics (if at risk), and rash. All are reversible. Concerns about serious risk to heart have been been debunked.
