06 Sep 2011 After being diagnosed with Adult ADHD, I was more aware of the symptoms of it and that I had it. I had never considered it a problem at work, but after starting Concerta, I had a new-found concentration ability. I was less distractible. I had better focus, which is very important in my line of work.

30 Jun 2011 Concerta's great for people with ADHD, but I wouldn't recommend taking a daily dosage. Discover strategies that help you overcome your disorder the natural way...without pills. Try meditating to clear your head, for example. That way your body won't be immune to Concerta when you need it most!

14 Apr 2011 This med greatly improved my concentration and energy level which in turn helped me improve my skills at work and then gave me the confidence to go back to College .I was just accepted into Nursing School! I dont think I would have had the abilty to focus on my studies without Concerta. On the flip side. I was diagnosed with high Blood pressure shortly(4 months) after beginning concerta. I have also been hospitalized 4 times with Supra Atrial Fibulation.This causes a persons pulse to raise so high that it feels like a heart attack is occuring. Each time this happened I was taken off the concerta for 6 months and then had to slowing titrate back to my normal dosage.
