My son is 8 and has been taking concerta for ove a year now,his doctor just proscribed him foclin bc they think the concerta has been stunting his growth.Does anyone know how long it takesthe conta to get out of is system?and how long it will take for the foclin to start working?He just started his first dose of foclin yesterday and it seemed to work but only for half the day.I just recently bought some foods organic and no preservates and no red dyes and no yellow dyes,minimum sugar

I am not an expert but took meds like those when I was young and I took a class on chemically dependency. I learned that drugs like that may stay in your system forever. They are stored in your fat lipids and when you burn them you may get a dose of the meds from years prior. Those drugs are also appetite suppressants, which may cause poor diet, which i would assume contribute to stunting growth. Ask your pharmacist or doctor. You have a right to know.
