Hello
Just hoping someone has advice for this situation.

I was on 36mg of Concerta but I stopped taking it one day about 3-4 months ago.
I can still call the doctor and get my old prescription again ( I think) but do I need to tell her that I've stopped taking it and I'm starting again.
When I started off I was on 18mg but it was terrible, I couldn't drive and was way more anxious about stuff than normal. Really wasn't the best situation to be in since I was also trying for my truck Licence at the time :eek:
I'd rather skip that and go straight up to 36mg again.

Are there other med options like amphetamines?

I wasn't given any other options at the time. Not sure I like the thought of amphetimines though?
I was doing OK on 36mg of Concerta, I just stopped taking it for personal reasons really.
