      Help! I’m 4 weeks pregnant I take 72mg of concerta I’m 24 years years old and have been taking my meds for well over 10 years now. I spoke to my doctor who was meant to lower my meds ages ago so I could wean off which he never did, so I only have two 36mg. I don’t wanna risk the baby, but I’m worried about the withdrawal symptoms as when I’ve not taken my med before missed a day I’ve felt tiered all day and hungry all day, I work with children at a nursery also, any mums that stopped taking it? Tell me how they coped

      Call your prescribing doctor and have this conversation with him or her.
