Concerta has actually helped me with school so much and I'm very grateful. I'm 20 years old and I've only taken it for a little over 5 months and I've been on deans list and my teachers dont hate me anymore for being distracted on my computer or talking all class.

I know that it lasts for 8-12 hours which is perfect. I do not know what I ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Treats my symptoms effectively, no negative interactions with several other prescriptions I take, 18's and 36's are easy to swallow.

As a controlled substance, I have to hand-carry all renewals and have had some difficulty with some pharmacies (Safeway, i.e.) who will not fil ... Show Full Comment
