I ask this question bc I was recently prescribed Concerta er 18 mg! I have had nausea to the point of gagging but not regurgitating. As well as Extreme sleepiness. It was very hard to do anything and took effort!! I called my Dr. She said it was a drug interaction with marijuana for me to go to a program for marijuana help!!! I thought this to be extremely harsh and irrational!!!
Has marijuana or syn marijuana in combo with Concerta ER 18mg ever have reports of bad side effects?

I have looked at the FDA's official website for furthur information. However my findings were nothing! I didnt find anything about concerta side effects that includes use of marijuana!

someone please respond i know its only been a few hours since i've written this but im kinda impatiently waiting on answers i made a appt with my social worker bc i was so dang mad about this :(
Your doc is bullshitting you. There are no adverse interactions between marijuana and stimulants.
I take medical marijuana for chronic pain, and Adderall for ADD. I've never had a problem.
Methylphenidate (Concerta is a long acting form of this) can cause nausea, and it can cause sleepiness as well. I'd seek another doctor's opinion.
