My son has been on Concerta for 3 years. He has just started taking 36mg and ever since he has a very strong body odor that is taking over our home. We have tried deodorant and body sprays but nothing works.
Does Concerta cause unusal strong body odor?

2 - 7% who take Concerta have been documented to have increase sweating as its side effects which could be the cause of bad body odor in case of your son, would recommend to seek medical advice from the doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med who may change the or alter the dose, wish him all the best.
