  • I found that consumption of caffeine while on Concerta, greatly intensified anxiety so just be careful with how much caffeine you take while taking concerta.

  • If you have any heart problems, they will become more prominent. My heart palpitations increase significantly when taking Ritalin, which I hate.

  • You need to take it early, with food. I find for best effect, take it as soon as you wake up, quickly followed by a breakfast with slow digesting carbohydrates, such as porridge, cereals or toast. It helps it release into the body gently

  • Know that it might stunt the growth of children, so they should take weekends and vacations off. Also, it can become less effective over time as your body gets used to it

  • I don't take the slow release and find the dose much more managable. Working with ADHD I take in the am right when I get up, in the pm I set 2 alarms one to take my pills (5 hours after AM pills) and then 30mins later so I remember to eat
