    If you or a loved one were harmed by the misuse or abuse of ADHD meds (i.e., taking them other than as directed, for academic enhancement or to get high) I would like to talk to you for a book I am writing

    I started on concerta last week. I am 42 and I’m annoyed that it has gone this long without being diagnosed. The first day I took it, I waited for half an hour to see the effect, and since I was not feeling anything I took one more. Again waited 30 minutes and was feeling a bit so popped one more. That led to me taking 3 that day. It doesn’t have the effect I had hoped. Now I’m left with half of the prescription, so I’ll Be calling my psych to say it hasn’t made a difference and hope he increases my dose this week. I’m addicted to everything I take so this will be the same I’m sure.
