I was prescribed concerta because adderall isn't available in my country. Please give me the facts... I am 38 and was just diagnosed with ADD.
hi Dazzle. my son is 12 years old and has ADD. he used Ritalin with a very bad reaction.
a wonderful doctor in South Africa, where we live, subscribed Concerta 18mg. it is expensice, but the results were immediate!
you have to drink this before 07:00 in the morning, before your day starts.
tonight after 19:00 it immediately stops working and allows your brain the rest it needs.
he started using this medicine at the age of 8 years. we have NEVER looked back. my son was placed in a school for mentally disabled persons before this.
he is now 12 years old and will be going to grade 3 next year!
I don't know about the other medication, but if it hasn't done anything for you by now, it doesn't work and you'll have to go back to the doctor. we have had no side effects whatso ever on our side. good luck and don't give up!
