How does concerta interact with marijuana?
- 7 Dec 2009 by Anon.
- concerta, ritalin, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd), marijuana
I have been taking concerta for a long time, i started on ritalin, i have ADHD. i have been considering experimenting with marijuana, but have been told that it can be extremely bad, fatal even.
I now take 54mg of concerta daily.
i want to know more about the results of having both and, if i do decide to try it, how long i would have to refrain from taking my concerta in order to safely do so.

I consider marijuana a drug just like many countless others and they call it as such. Marijuana is a downer and concerta is an upper when taken by the right person concerta can turn into a downer if you have severe adhd. So the side effects in my opinion can be crucial or not crucial depends on the person and how the two different drugs have an effect on them. For my son the effects from adhd medication(concerta)his medication is a downer it slows down the illness to the point where he is normal and in control of himself if let's say for instance we added marijuana to that he would be even more chilled out:).

I would first wonder your age and state of residence (regarding legality issues). In addition, are you referring to recreational use or medicinal use? I am a big advocate for legalization, both recreational and medicinal, but it's very important that you are of age and are properly knowledgeable about the different strains of the herb and how they can be used. I have seen it directly benefit some people, and directly harm others.
As far as it being fatal, I am unaware of any fatalities from the use of marijuana. (I am NOT implying that you should or shouldn't use/medicate with marijuana, and although I am an advocate I have only done limited research in certain situations and please do not consider this to be medical advice!)
