My son, who has reported difficulty focusing & paying attention, & "wandering" in school has just been prescribed Concerta 18mg/day. I am nervous about the side effects. The depression, the cardiac issues-palpitations etc. He plays sports-will he have probs running, etc? I am a nervous wreck to start this, but most of the posts I have read say it does wonders for their kids' concenatrtion, grades, etc. When can I expect to see improvement? Any advice welcome.
