Anyone else have their child on this for ADHD? Have you tried other medications? What is your review of the medicine?

  • Hated it!! My son was getting in trouble for falling asleep in class, not being able to concentrate, not being able to keep his hands to himself. Two months into the school year and poor grades later I put him back on Concerta. Within weeks his grades were back up and the teacher thanked me over and over. Of course meds work differently on everyone. Good luck. 2 of my sons are on concerta and I wont "experiment" with anything else anymore. Its hard enough for these kids to deal with things not being medicated but to take something that doesnt work is very frustrating. My son is almost 12 and when we tried the intuniv he cried and said he felt "crazy". He had no control.
