Re: What is the Average Dose of Concerta?

I'm on 36mg of Concerta. Worked OK for about 2 weeks, now I'm back to being very ADD. Can't concertrate at all. I see the doc on Monday for an increase because I didn't want to double up on 36...seems like a big jump

Anyhow, I found this:

http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releas...-nso102607.php

You know how I knew my dose was low enough? Because when meds work, at night I am brain dead and able to sleep...when they don't work I get awful bouts of insomnia!! Last night I had <4 hours sleep...same with the night before....makes my ADD even worse!!! That's because I feel the need for coffee in the afternoon because I am so out of it...

Go figure...an ADDer must take stimulants to sleep well at night...how counter intuitive!

Anyow, that link above says the mean dose for hte study inthe end was 67mg
