ADHD in Women
CONCERTA TWICE DAILY???
I AM 34 AND HAVE WAS DIAGNOSED AND TREATED WITH 54MG CONCERTA OVER A YEAR AGO. I AM INATTENTIVE, NOT HYPERACTIVE. I AM A STAY AT HOME MOM…. MY DAYS ARE NOW MORE PRODUCTIVE, I WAS HAPPY WITH MY TREATMENT. I NOTICED THAT I “CRASH” ABOUT 3ISH, BUT MY DUTIES DONT ALLOW FOR THAT, SO I CONTINUE, WITH HOMEWORK, DINNER, OTHER ROUTINE THINGS, BUT WHEN ITS “MY TIME” AGAIN, AT 8 OR 9… IM NOT SLEEPY BUT MY BRAIN STOPPED WORKING. I AM ONLY GOOD FOR VEGGING IN FRONT OF THE TV, BUT I ENJOY BOOKS PUZZLES AND GAMES, AND CANT DO THEM….. SO I TOLD MY DOC AND HE CHANGED MY PRESCRIPTION. NOW I STILL TAKE MY SAME 54 IN THE MORNING, BUT 36 AT 2PM. SLEEP AND SIDE EFFECTS ARENT A PROBLEM FOR ME. HE SAID FOR ME TO TRY THAT, AND HE MAY UP THE AFTERNOON DOSE TO 54…
DOES ANYONE HAVE SIMILAR EXPERIENCES? WILL THE 36 GIVE ME ENOUGH AFTERNOON BRAIN POWER, WHEN I NORMALLY NEED 54???
