In brief: DO NOT

Take more medication than your doctor has prescribed! this is not a recreational drug that you take when you.

In brief: Meds R for normalcy

You take Concerta to repair your neurobiologic disorder (adhd).
You do not take it to study or do better in school. If you find you are having trouble studying, then consult your physician to assess the reasons why. Studying is just a specific form of brain activity, all functions of which should be normalized by stimulant medication.

In brief: Concerta

Not sure what the dose prescribed is, but you can't cut the extended-release Concerta in half.
Consult your doctor first.
