How will I know if Concerta is working?

Hello - I was wondering if anyone can advise based on their own experiences? I have been on Concerta for ADHD for about three weeks. One week on 18mg, no affect and not really any side effects; 36mg for a week and no affect and not really any side effects so I started on 54mg yesterday and felt dreadful, with no benefit. I was really flat and felt very on edge. I didn't really want to talk to anyone when I felt like that and didn't know where to put myself.

Does this go away? Do you get used to it? I felt no benefit and do not want to go onto 72mg. I know medication doesn't work for everyone.

Also, I was asked to stay on 54mg for a month. I thought you would no whether it would work straight away, within a day or two since it is so fast acting and doesn't build in your system like other meds. Any thoughts?
