      21years old, 70kg.

      I’m taking Concerta 72mg for two weeks.
      I’m feeling smart and calm with this medication, but forgetting alot of things. looks like contradiction, but it is not.

      When the medication is wearing off, I’m feeling sad, and anxious.
      on weekends (friday and saturday), when I’m not taking the medication, I’m feeling happy (in compare to before I started with this medication.)

      Is it looks like an over-dose?

      When the sadness and anxiety is not normal?

      Is the “happy feeling” on weekends, is normal?

      I’m afraid of psychiatric problem, that won’t show, until i’ll stop with the medication.
      Is there a way to check if it won’t happen?

      Sorry for my bad english.

      Thank you!

      I take Concerta 37 mg, 3 times a day. I do not take weekends off. My psychiatrist doesn’t recommend weekends off as my ADHD doesn’t take weekends off. I seem to be doing well on it, I’ve been on it for a few years. It’s very common for those of us with ADHD to suffer with depression and anxiety so I can’t attest to it being the medication wearing off, but I’m not a doctor.

      Those feelings aren’t fun, I live with these challenges too.
