My 8 year old Grandson is on 27 mg. of concerta ER. I have noticed changes in him. He no longer is loving and he rarely smile or laughes. Does'nt want the dog and cats close to him, where he use to love putting them. Doesn't wnt to be touched. Wont tell me he loves me. All before taking this medicine did these things. A worried Grandmother. Please help if you can.

My son is also 8 years old and he is on 54mg of Concerta... so I would say "no" 27mg is not to high for your grandson... Maybe if he took 18mg of the concerta he would be a little more "normal" with less side effects... I have noticed that when my son is on too high of a dose of something that its usually due to his body adjusting to it and give it a few weeks to adjust OR if he continues to be "spaced out" too much it usually means the does needs lowered... hope this helps?
