He was diagnosed with ADHD at age 55. He would like to get off it but I'm afraid just stopping would cause ill effects. Does any one know the best way. I figured gradually or what?

Who's decision was it to get off the concerta? did he want to or did the doc suggest it? because concerta consist of amphetamines(speed) he will go through some serious withdraws i suggest he discusses it with his doctor first. Yes he will definantly need to ween off this drug and may even need rehabilitation to help him if its bad enough and with 10 years under hes belt i believe it will be pretty hard. Make an appt. with his doc a.s.a.p and follow through with whatever treatment they suggest for the best results rather than just winging it on his own. Good luck to you and your husband and god bless you both.
