Does Concerta have a "shelf life"?

...just started 18mg on wednesday. doc wanted me to try for 3 days and move up to 36mg. today (day 3) i wanted to try an intermediate 27mg before going to 36mg tomorrow....

....i tried one of my kids' 27mg pills that is "left-over" from their advancing beyond to higher doses.

don't like how it feels. no calmness, no direction, no much of anything. i now realize that the pill bottle is dated nearly a year ago.

...has the efficacy of these older 27mg pills gone away due to their age?

thanks for any insight.

Re: Does Concerta have a "shelf life"?

Could be the dose is too high for u. I've found 54mg that dropped behind my desk from a year ago and they worked just as well.
