Prescribed Concerta

I was prescribed 18mg of Concerta about a week and a half ago. I have taken the medicine every day and I didn't feel anything. So 2 days ago I started taking two pills because I was getting frustrated with the results and I still haven't felt any changes. I am a male, 16 years old. 5'11". At 170 pounds 16% body fat. Can anyone tell me anyone methods that can help me feel the effects? Or what I should tell my doctor.

Re: Prescribed Concerta

Tell your Doctor. Do not take any more or less than prescribed- especially more of a controlled medicine. You will run out before it's time to refill and the pharmacy might not refill it or maybe even the Doc won't write another prescription.



I see that you are in Canada and I'm not sure how things work there but in the US this is a real possibility.
