      hello,
      Im a 29 year old male and I was recently diagnosed with adhd and was prescribed concerta 18mg. I just started taking them this week and feel very very very little difference. I still seem to be wondering in my mind fidgeting and all the previous symptoms that i have lived my life with. Just wondering if anyone has experience with this dose of concerta should i feel something after 3 days of taking it?

      You should notice a difference, so this doesn’t appear to be the right medication or dose for you. Doctors start at the lowest dose and increase only if and when needed. That’s the standard best practices for prescribing ADHD medication. Reach out to your prescribing doctor and discuss this.
