Dear parents
My son is 8 and i just started concerta two months back.. he feels good about himself at school being able to write and answer questions.. but he started eyes blinking and his doctor told me it is the side effect.. however at the end of the second month i noticed he is depressed for no reason and he doesnt want to do any thing neither eating or playing.. then started getting ragious for the minimum reason.. also very violent and thinking violently.. holding knife when angry from someone.. it makes me think that it could be from medication.. yet not sure.. any similar situation?!
