Intrusive negative thoughts...

It's my third day on Concerta, and I'm having intrusive negative thoughts - scary ones. Not scary like I'm going to act out; scary like something terrible is going to happen to me.

I've had these thoughts before, but it seems now they are more intrusive, like I can't put them out of my mind.

Has anyone else had altered thinking as a result of Concerta? Is it something you got over in time?

Re: Intrusive negative thoughts...

i think you should ask your doctor
sometimes methylphenidate makes OCD/Anxiety symptoms worse than before

also i don't know that you have one of those problems, maybe your dose is too high
higher dose than you need may cause it

Could be the dose? When I was on 27mg I had constant thoughts of impending doom and suicidal ideation. Now I'm on 54mg and it's perferct.
