Is it safe to take Addwize or concerta if I’m finding it difficult to focus on specific tasks? I believe I suffer from ADHD.

Meet a psychiatrist. He/She will assess you for ADHD. Taking concerta can be harmful especially without prescrpition.

Your observation is accurate. However you've not indicated why your doctor has prescribed it to you and it is likely you don't know. It could well be the most important medicine you have been prescribed. Visit your doctor and ask him what to do about it. Another thing you can do is to take the tablet after a heavy breakfast. If you've already stopped it please do tell your doctor about the discontinuation. Don't hide it from him.

No, you should not take methylphenidate for this. Rather than adding one more medication just to avoid side effect of current medications better option is to modify your current medication regime. You may take these medications in night if you are taking in day or change the medication if you already taking them in night. Consult your treating psychiatrist or take second opinion from another psychiatrist nearby or online. All the best.

I want to ask the question regarding the medicine tab inspiral- sr 20. It is prescribed to me by my doctor in the morning. I want to know that it has short term affect only i.e. On the daily basis from morning to evening or on taking it daily for weeks or months it creates long lasting affect. I.e. We should not miss its doses to get near to permanent change in mind and how long does it take to start this medicine make an impact on us or create changes. Please clear my all the confusions one by one. Thank you.

Dear lybrate-user I am assuming you were prescribed Inspiral (methylphenidate) for ADHD. This medication will not cause long term changes to your brain, rather will help you increase productivity on a daily basis i.e. Each day you take them your work efficiency and quality of life will be better. Over time this may help you have a better life amd increase your cnofidence. If you miss a dose your day could be worse than what ot was earlier due to rebound effects.

My son age 21 years went to a psychiatrist where he was prescribed these 3 medicines namely:- inspiral, floxin -plus and pexup-10 .the doctor gave him these medicines for ocd where as he simply has anxiety problems. My concern is that though he took these medicines only for 2 days. He is going into depression. He read the views in google abt the side effects and now he thinks that they have affected him .he locks himself in the room and cries that he cannot connect with the outside world because of those medicines. Please tell me does these medicines have such side effects jst by taking them for 2 days or he is just over thinking. Kindly advise.

The medications that have been prescribed by the doctor / psychiatrist for your son are fine. Some people react differently to different medications and you might want to continue giving the medications if there are no serious side effects. The good effects of the medications take about 20-30 days for them to show up and I believe that you will be able to get over the bad effects once you start focusing on the good effects the medication is having. I also think that you should start to not read as much about the medications online as the information may not be accurate and there are many websites that are peddling allopathic or english medications as being bad and having bad effects, which is not true. If you need a second opinion, you can certainly do so online. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio, or video appointment for a confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

Tremors that you mention are more a sign of anxiety and tension than a side effect of the medication. Inspiral may cause you to have this side effects among others if started at very high doses. I also think that you should give the medication some time to get over the side effects as they are usually only present for the first few days. If you continue to have trouble you can certainly contact us and we can guide you in the right direction. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, an appointment for a confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.
