My son was just diagnosed with ADHD and was put on Concerta CR, how long before I will see the effects of the medication working?

Here is the thing.. Adhd medication
Medication does Not stay In the blood longer than 24 hours
It isn't like an anti depressant which can take up to 2 weeks to show effects.
You should see the effects of Adhd medication right away within a day or 2 tops
If you haven't noticed any difference it's one of 2 things
Either concerta isn't right for your child
Or your child doesn't Actually have adhd
I suggest trying aderall it's a better medication. However if after trying 2 medications
You still do not notice a difference it is likely your child doesn't have adhd and you should look into alternative behavioural management
