Sounds like you need a new doctor. All stimulant medications (including Concerta) work when they’re in your system and not when they’re not. Medications like Straterra and anti-depressants can take up to 2 months to see full effects. I would be afraid to have a doctor prescribing medications to me that doesn’t even understand the basics of them.
