I'm wondering if anyone tested his ability to learn new languages (say from scratch) and compare it to how it used to be pre-medication? I've been diagnosed with ADD at 24 and I always wanted to learn more languages (advanced in 3 atm) but never really started doing anything toward this direction. Now when Concerta therapy starts I'll most likely finnaly get started and the simple question is: Do you learn "much" faster when on Methylphenidate (Concerta)? What's your dose?
Short version: Does concerta (Methylphenidate) speeds up learning of new languages?
Methyphenidate allows one with ADD to focus on the task at hand. Whether it would help you learn a new language, well that is totally up to you and your abilities. Sincerely, Sweet Hippie

Hello pstachecki. It very likely might. Your focus will certainly be working over time. I speak/write in 4 languages along with 3 dialects. Never been on any of the ADD/ADHD drugs. Hopefully you'll find Concerta to be helpfull in regards to a new language. Tot ziens! See you! A prochen! (till next time) daag! Byee! pledge
