My daughter has been on Concerta for a bit. She's tried various dosages to figure out what's best for her. It seems that the 34mg is not quite enough but the 56? mg was too much. She did wonderfully as far as in school and all that, but it almost turned her zombie-ish ... she just didn't laugh or smile when she had that dosage.
My question is ... what works for you? I'm considering asking the doctor to switch her medicine to see if something else would do better for her, but I'm not quite sure if I should just deal with things as they are or try something new. She's doing better than if she wasn't taking it, but considering that I saw how well she could do ... I guess I'm just wondering whether it's worth trying anything else out.
