Additional Thoughts
i have had my son on Concerta for about a year now. It has really helped him. We recently switched due to medical coverage and the meds he is on now do not help at all. I am in the process of getting him back on Concerta. All his teachers saw a huge difference in him when we switched. He became more disruptive and unfocused. Concerta is the best help for my son.

Increased blood pressure

Additional Thoughts
Our 7 year old had a major jump in his blood pressure due to this medication. The doctor switched to adderall, and the blood pressure went back down to normal. Other than that, it did seem to help.
