I am a psychologist diagnosed at 60 years of age. I have worked with many patients and take many of the medications. One major issue I see with most people who take medication is they are under medicated. Generics are inferior to the Brands. Concerta is marketed as one per day. Not true. Most people need a second dose in the afternoon. This is true of all the 12 hour marketed meds. How long does the Concerta last in your system? When you are having the most trouble, is it after the medication has worn off? Like in the evening ? Most doctors are afraid to prescribe at the appropriate doses. ADHD causes anxiety and depression as a matter of course.
