View Full Version : Concerta concerns

08-11-09, 01:25 PM
My 5 year old daughter is on Concerta 27mg daily, and has been for about 6 weeks now. It has helped, but there are still days that you would swear I forgot to give her her pill. Could it just be an especially bad day, or is it possible her body is getting used to the medication and it's not having the same effect?

Everyone has good and bad days, ADDers on medication are no exception.

It really depends on how many bad days there are vs good days. If it's more good, then it's probably a bad day. If there is more bad, or it's obvious that the bad days are progressively getting worse, or more frequent, then it's probably time to talk to the doc about the medication.

my son has been on concerta for 3 years and it seems he has to have his meds bumped up each year.
