Can I drink coffee before then take it?
Suzanne is right. Caffeine not only will increase stimulation, but if taken while on Concerta, it can cause you to become more easily irritable and easily agitated. Also, Concerta is designed to make you feel more tied by the end of the day so that you can rest better; added caffeine will keep this from happening. Overall, Concerta is a good med for ADHD but you have to help make it more effective by limiting the caffeine. Don't forget "hidden" caffeine also (tea and chocolate are the sources most of us forget about. Hope this helps.
